Flashback Friday - Skirt and Vest

Many of you liked the post last Friday (thanks for the nice comments), so I am back with another Flashback Friday.  This one is from Erin's 4th birthday in 1994.  She asked for balloons for her birthday, we supplied a few and  her Mimi (my mom) was happy to bring her some along with a present of course.

This is a simple skirt and a vest from some printed denim, which I purchased at Joann's.

She looks so cute and happy with her balloons and Paige is peaking in at the side of the picture, gosh I love those girls and the memories of that day.

I do not have the patterns anymore but here is something similar that would work.

Simplicity 1785 for the skirt or Simplicity 2576

Simplicity 1786 for the vest with a more 2013 look!


On a side note, this last Tuesday I closed on the the renovated house my son-in-law and I did.  The house had an offer the week after it was listed, just takes some time to close.  I am pleased with the outcome and if the right house came along, I might do it again.


  1. How cute! Erin looks so proud and happy!

  2. Love those smiles! Fun to look back on our old projects, isn't it?!

  3. Congratulations on selling the house! That's a big accomplishment!, Erin's little outfit is secure and both girls look adorable!, I love the mint jacket you made and all the outfits it goes with! It's a winner!

  4. Congratulations!!!!! Now on to the next reno project!

  5. Congratulations! That's wonderful news!
