This skirt is cut from heavy weight linen/cotton with a wide rickrack trim.
Cutting out the babies. This is a fun way to combine lots of my vintage prints.
A detail of her pin made from a vintage earring.
Five babies hanging from vintage narrow rickrack trim.

I am off to Texas for the week but will check in next week. Happy Spring!
