VTT, Vintage Bear And Baby Dress

This sweet old bear was on eBay and no one was bidding on her, poor abandoned, little orphan girl!

She was wearing an adorable vintage baby dress and was holding a piece of antique quilt in her hand! I rescued her, had to, you know, the quilt did it!

See the delicate embroidery on the front......

darling embroidered Peter Pan collar and wee buttons on the placket......


and even pantaloons, though these are not as old as the dress, they were added later for modesty no doubt.


I was so tickled to win the bid-but remember there was no competition- and she sits on the shelf above my sewing machine table along with the rest of the stuffed animal collection.

For more delicious vintage thrills head on over to Colorado Lady's blog and check out all the others.

That's a cute dress and bear. That's the kind of auction I like--when nobody else is bidding.

She's just darling, and so well dressed too! It's always so nice when you don't have to fight to win something on Ebay. I guess she was meant to come live with you. So.....what's her name?!
Happy VTT!

Oh what a sweet bear, and darling little dress. I have a dress almost exactly like that one. I have it hanging on my bedroom wall.

Wow - - - you'd have A LOT of help with hand sewing if you could just teach those animals to sew!

That is the cutest post for today's VTT. At least someone cared enough for it to put clothes on it.

The bear is cute, the dress is sweet. Was there much to the quilt piece? She looks at home amongst the koalas and others! I want to play in the button jar! :))
