A generation of baby bloomers
Is this year being the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese zodiac the reason for the baby boom? It’s the only thing I can think of to explain why at least FIFTEEN babies are being born to people I know this year. Strangely enough, none of them are Chinese! Needless to say, I’ve been having to churn out baby gear at a rate of knots recently. These bloomers are my latest effort. I made them using this vintage pattern.
I wouldn’t usually make two of something at once, but with this many babies around, I decided a mini production line was the only way to handle things. So that’s why I have two identical pairs of kind-of nautical bloomers for some little Japanese boys in Tokyo. I made them from vintage yukata (casual summer kimono) material and then just ironed on an anchor motif.
