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.
