Bell Bottom Beauty

We visited the Botanic Gardens yesterday and whilst waiting for a friend, we frolicked in the fallen leaves. I'm enjoying the really simple things lately, like giggling like a gerty with my daughter whilst we kick leaves around. Doesn't take much to make us happy. :D
I made my daughter's swing top and bell bottom pants that she is wearing in the photos above. The pants were super easy to make and the top took only a little longer. Now that we have a cute outfit for her to wear, I would love to pass on the vintage sewing lurv and give away the pattern that I used, featured below...

It's a size 2, and is officially called Toddlers' Jumper and Bell-Bottomed Pants. It's vintage 1974 and has all patterns pieces and instructions included. If you would like to be the next owner of this pattern, simply leave a comment and I will announce the lucky person next Tuesday evening.

I love the outfit. Is that a vintage mushroom print? Your girl looks just like the model on the cover of the pattern.
