My mother was an accomplished seamstress, and also loved to knit, cross stitch and needlepoint. She made these two little sweaters for Elliott and Emily shortly after they were born in the early 80s. I have no idea where she found the patterns, but they are so cute — she had extremely good taste. Elliott got a little hat to match his sweater.
Emily got a cute bunny sweater, but no hat.
She did, however, get these adorable matching pink leather shoes which my sister, Sally, bought in Paris. Emily really likes shoes, so I’m sure even as a toddler, she would have opted for shoes as opposed to hat.
Here’s Emily with mother when she was visiting us in Los Angeles (mother also knit the sweater she is wearing). Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo of Elliott and mother where he is wearing his little sweater.
