Everyday Vintage And Our New Puppy

Introducing Miss Coco!
A little chihuahua we found at the feed store.

We love her…
Everyday Vintage
I found this blouse in a pile at a yard sale for 2 dollars. I fixed the pockets and patched the holes.

It’s Jiminy Cricket from the old Disney  movie Pinochio!
I have no idea how old this blouse is but I love it! I’m guessing the early sixties?
The first Disneyland opened here in California in 1959
and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was something that was sewn from fabric bought around that time.
Anyone have any idea?

I think it may have been pajamas or some sort of smock top originally .
I’m not too sure about my patch job but I wore this all day and got quite a few comments once people noticed it was Jiminy Cricket!

    I was always a BIG DOG person and never thought I would see the day I wanted or loved a chihuahua. But my baby girl Bug changed all that and I do plan on having another chihuahua someday in the far future. She is my precious pretty pretty princess girl baby. I think chihuahuas are misunderstood. People hate them because they are yappers and growlers and very vocal, but I think that they are must trying to talk the way we do and that is the only way they know how. Very misunderstood dogs are chihuahuas.

    I was searching to see if i could date that fabric in the blouse and came across this pic. (i have some blue that i am listing in my etsy store now.) I ended up with a half yard of it from a friends quilting stash. She quilted in the late 70’s and early 80’s. But like you i think the fabric is from at least the 70’s.
