Looking for a Jacqueline
I was at Goodwill the otherday when they announced that all children's clothing was going on sale for $0.99. I went looking for a few t-shirts for this project. This is what I found. It so reminded me of my friend Viv's little girl. Viv's daughter spends her summers at the Jersey Shore and she is a real girly girl. I haven't seen her in many years, but I figured if the size four was too small, I would cut the shoulder seams and add wide ribbon ties to make it work. I just knew Jacqueline would love the flip flops. And, I am sure she would have if she wasn't Jacklyn. Dang!
I seemed to remember something about her daddy saying, ""Jacqueline reminded him of girls who wouldn't date him in high school" when they were picking names. I totally had doubts buying it, but just couldn't leave it at the store. It is absolutely pristine white soft terry cloth. Not a speck of stain anywhere. Jacqueline, much like Viv's Jacklyn, obviously didn't like getting messy. Which makes it all the more perfect for her. Double dang!
I thought of making some sort of sand patch to go over the name, but have instead decided to offer it up here.
Do you know a Jacquline who is a size 3 who can wear this next summer?
Just email me at janeclifflittle at yahoo dot com and I will send it to on. This adorable beach cover up deserves some love.
