 My grandson visited me this last June, and my daughter and I thought it would be fun to dress him up in his Great Grandfather’s baby clothing , worn during the mid 1920’s.  The little pants and shirt fit him exactly and I am so glad that we took the time to do this.  Its amazing how good the clothing showed up in the photo, and didn’t look nearly as frayed as it really is.  I love those big black buttons, and the little flannel pants are in perfect condition, which means they were probably worn only on special occasions.  Cabrin wasn’t really  in the mood to play dress up – at 8 months I think he did very well!  Just thought it would be fun to share!  We set up on my front porch to look like an old time kitchen using some of my primitive American pieces, (which I love.) 









Here is a photo of the original owner of the clothing.  I wish I had a picture of him wearing the little suit!
