An apple dress made by Nanny - Toddler OOTD #40
When I was little my Nanny made me lots of clothes. Practically my whole pre-school wardrobe was made by her. There is one particular item I still remember fondly. It was a knitted bright pink pullover, with a horse at the front. The horse was white with black Dalmatian-like spots - it was from the book Pippi Longstocking. The best thing about the horse was its freely flowing hair and tail. You could pet them and plat them. For a five year old girl that was the coolest thing ever.
This apple dress was also made by a grandmother - made for my daughter by her Nanny. I wonder if in the future she will remember this apple dress as fondly as I remember my pink pullover. I wonder if she will remember the apple shaped pocket, and the way the skirt would fly up when wind caught it. And I wonder if she will look back at the pictures and giggle how much the puffy shoulders make her look like a miniature 50's housewife.
She has lots of dresses made by Nanny, many more. There are beach dresses, going-out dresses, casual dresses, colourful dresses, in fact, all kinda of dresses and she revels in them. She is a real girly girl who loves nothing more than donning on a dress, grabbing her mummy's purse pretending to be 'little mummy' and pinching my Clinique Chubby Stick to dab herself a 'pink mouth'. Like I said, a real girly girl.
And a lucky girl too, isn't she, getting beautiful unique dresses made just for her?
Yes, so lucky! I love the little apple pocket! My mom makes lots of dresses for my girls, too. (In fact both of my posts on Funky Kid Friday this week are dresses made by my mom.) All these girls sure are fortunate to have caring grandmothers making custom outfits for them! - Amy @ http://thegiftedgabber.comReplyDelete
It really is lovely isn't it, and wow, your girls are very lucky too then! I remember you often have lots of gorgeous handmade clothes for them! I'll have to pop over and check what your mum has made this time :)Delete
What a talented nanny she has, such a cute dress. I bet she loves having dresses no one else has #weekendtotstyleReplyDelete
Ah she does, she is such a little madam, she loves dressing up :)Delete
That is such a beautiful dress, perfect for such a beautiful girl xReplyDelete
I wasn't into dresses when I was little much to my Grans dismay, lol. She did make me a few dresses- but only until I was old enough to say no and undress myself, ha! xx
He he poor Gran - but I hope she got to make you other stuff than just dresses :) I think my daughter's Nanny is secretly happy she is a dress-lover as she has been making lots of them for her :)Delete
Aww wow your daughter's nanny is a very talented lady! It's such a beautiful dress :) #weekendtotstyleReplyDelete
She is! This is a lovely design as well, and has a few tricky techniques used in it too :)Delete
Oh wow, that dress is adorable and Nanny is so clever! Loving the pocket, the detailing, everything! Thank you for sharing #WeekendTotStyleReplyDelete

Wow what a talented nanny! Such a gorgeous little dress. I love the bright Red and the apple print. She looks so cute in it. The hair bows finish it off perfectly! Thanks so much for linking up :) #weekendtotstyleReplyDelete
Yeah, the hair bow was a nice little touch at the end, although it didn't last long as I am sure you can imagine. She pulled it out after about five minutes ha ha. Thanks for hosting!Delete
Oh my goodness, this dress is stunning. Very lucky to have bespoke clothing x #weekendtotstyleReplyDelete

I wish I could sew. How lucky your daughter is to have someone to make beautiful dresses like this! x #styleitReplyDelete
