How lovely!

I collect old dolls. Most of the clothing patterns available and samples from sites like the Costumers' Manifesto are for frillier garments than the children in the illustrations are wearing, so this is a gold mine of inspiration for me. It's far easier to find illustration of women's clothing to copy than it is children's.
I just love little boy blue (or is that Dick Whittington?) and his tabby cat.

Rather a step up from your usual coloring book, I thought.
