This Season’s New Look...



...may or may not have something to do with peering through upside-down swimming goggles, but should definitively have something to do with upcycled clothing. One of the treasures found at the Daylesford Maker’s Market is this reconditioned jumper-ette by Mermadeit. Deborah does top and bottom sets too, but given nary a matching sock-pair has made it out of this house alive, I opted against the exercise in co-ordinates futility thing.

That once one-armed baby is the source of so much amusement in this house..

Gina said...

That's awesome. I love a good refashion! I hope I learn to be as creative with pre-loved clothing. And boy do I wish my kids looked so hip...

Beck said...

I really love Mermadeit's creations, they are so fun and also warm!!(We love anything warm up here in the sticks). She also had a pinkish one which I fancied, but it was a little too small for me. Might check out her website too! x

That weird breathing sound you can hear is the combination of I-want-one hyperventilation over the cute little jumper and a that-warms-the-cockles-of-my-heart laugh about the goggles. Too, too cute!

LOL, i am glad mine are not the only kids who like wearing "gobbles!" We have even had to wear them out to the supermarket!

I have to send you a photo of Adele at a similar age with her upside down goggles and a similarly ironic expression. And what a charming jumperette - goes beautifully with the orange in the goggles.
