Vintage patterns such as this one are rare.

These dresses  are so precious!  The first view is a sleeveless dress with  a collar that is trimmed with lace. The second view  dress with no collar and that has puffed sleeves. Look at the red and white polka dotted sleeveless...Just precious for a toddler girl!

The vintage children's patterns give us an opportunity to make toddler clothing that has a timeless beauty and on old fashioned appeal.

There are a few of the vintage patterns listed at the bottom this page or click  the next link to see a greater selections of Vintage Toddler Dress Patterns.  Isn't it great the way antique and vintage patterns are available today through eBay?

Sometimes pattern companies will bring back an old pattern design to mix in with the newest pattern choices. These classic patterns seem to always sell well because they have stood the test of time. They were beautiful then and they are beautiful now.  I am particularly partial to smocked children's clothing patterns and especially smocked bishop dresses for girls.

I took a smocking class and learned to smock while making a round yoke ladies blouse. The yoke was smocked with a geometric pattern all the way around. The blouse had short sleeves which were also smocked, that  gave the sleeves elasticity and comfort.  I never smocked any more clothing for myself, but devoted my new skill to making day gowns for my first child. I don't have the blouse I made anymore, but I still have three of the smocked baby day gowns that I made many years ago. My first child, L, wore them, and then they were passed down to three brothers and one sister over the next ten years. All five of our children wore these smocked daygowns and they are still in very good condition. Perhaps we'll have some grandchildren who will wear them, too.

Over the years, I have enjoyed many kinds of needlework.  There was a time when I carried a needlework project with me almost everywhere I went, in case I had to wait somewhere, I would be able to redeem the time by getting some stitches done.  Besides smocking, I have knitted sweaters and afghans, embroidered pillows (crewel embroidery), made  clothes for myself and my children, and quilted on small scale.  Smocking is the most satisfying needlework I have ever done.  Perhaps it is because the clothing I was making was for our babies and that motherly emotion gave me a preference for smocking... I don't know, but I still have the greatest appreciation of smocking as an artform that I have enjoyed immensely myself.

I am on the sidelines now....still admiring and appreciating, but not smocking myself.  But I long to get back to it again.  None of my children are married yet, but perhaps when they are and we are blessed with grandchildren, I will get busy and take up smocking again!

Whenever winter nears its end, I long for spring which sweeps across the land, gently awakening the new season to amazing color. Smocking brings the beauty of spring to children's clothing. The needle creates designs such as a bouquet of flowers, a bunny for Easter, pastel bows, or bright strawberries encircling a round yoke bishop dress. There is no other type of clothing for children that welcomes spring as well as smocked children's clothing.

As winter slowly turns into spring, color begins to bloom everywhere around us.  We see a first crocus or a little child is delighted with a clump of blooming daffodils.  Children's  clothing reflects the changing of the seasons.
