1952 vintage pattern
Ready to head out the door for trick or treating, mommy snapped a photo of me wearing the Little Bo Peep costume with a neighbor ghost and a cousin wearing a pirate costume made originally for my brother in 1952. The pirate costume has lasted and recently was worn by my brother’s grandson.
Removing the cummerbund, adding a vest and big bonnet, a slightly different costume was created for the following year. A basket of flowers replaced Little Bo Peeps staff.
The bonnet is a bit droopy and a little lamb is included as my daughter, Jill continues the tradition of wearing the vintage costume.
