Vintage Thingie Thursday- Reversible Jumper

Welcome to Vintage Thingie Thursday hosted by Suzanne at The Colorado Lady.

A few weeks ago, my mom gave me some clothing that she'd kept from my birth through my toddler years. This delightful jumper was one of the items.

My grandmother made this for me when I was a toddler.

This little dress is a reversible jumper. It's fully lined between the two designs. And very heavy!

For the front, my grandmother cut out the boy and girl characters from the printed material and then sewed them onto the yellow fabric.

This jumper is definitely a keepsake that I'll always treasure.

Thank you for your visit!

This is precious. It so reminds me of the dresses my grandma made for me and how I wish I still had them. I love the fabrics too! Very cute. Thanks for the memories this morning. Happy VTT

Yes, it is a treasured keepsake. How wonderful that your mother saved it for you. The printed fabric is amazing. Thanks for stopping by CITexas Gal for VTT.

That is so cute. I think I may have had a similar in style dress (the two sided jumper variety) when I was a kid. Your grandmother was very talented.
