Pixie Lily — heirloom clothing, for baby

How cute is this bonnet?? How cute? I can’t wait till Ava wears it this summer. I love how Victorian it is! I must say I have a weakness for all things traditional — I wish I still had some baby clothes that were my mother’s, or my grandmother’s even. Unfortunately those have all been lost, except for some crib sheets that were hand embroidered by my grandmother for my mother and that I love dearly.
The designer behind Pixie Lily, Leda Jackson, did have some heirloom family pieces to dress her daughter in when she was born — her baby’s first dress was made for her great-grandfather (a count, nevertheless)! Leda fell in love with the finery of her ancestors’ pieces and decided to fill out her daughter’s wardrobe with some similar styles, and this is how her brand Pixie Lily was formed over 10 years ago. The collection is traditional, and of absolute amazing quality with an impressive eye for detail. Even the packaging is exquisite. I hope the Pixie Lily garments my baby wears will be worn by her great-grandchildren!

I agree! There’s nothing like bonnets and bloomers. I love all things old and traditional. They always seem like they have a great story to tell.
