Clothes for a little boy. Comfy long johns, a warm scarf, a woollen flat cap, longsleeve, practical dungarees for climbing trees, undies and shoes. And as it is with little boys with red cheeks and tousled hair - if they run with their kite down the hill, the jacket* gets thrown somewhere in a corner because "I am so, so warm, mommy". Oh well, better get some cough tea ready...
It is so much fun making vintage-style clothes with a fresh and modern touch for little boys (and, for that matter, for girls). Putting together fabrics, choosing yarns, flipping through books from 1940's and 1950's was something I enjoyed a lot when working on this little rascal.
Storm stands 54cm/21" tall and will be available for a short auction on Hyena Cart on tuesday, 28 October, from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT. More info about the where's and how's will follow during the weekend as well as a lot of photos - stay tuned.
*for those of you who worry about this being a case of child neglect, Storm does have a warm jacket, just for the record. I'll make sure he will travel properly dressed to his new family next week ;-)
