I love Simplicity’s vintage pattern #9395. It is from the 1970’s and I am sure I had a similar outfit when I was little. I made this version up with some vintage violet fabric I found for less than $1 per yard at an antique shop. You can find similar fabric on Etsy here, and on Ebay here. Be sure to check yardage and ask about fabric condition when buying vintage fabric. We used ric rac from M & J Trimming in Manhattan, (one of Ada’s favorite places on the planet). The buttons are vintage mother-of-pearl from our stash. You can find similar sets of buttons here. This bubblesuit and pinafore can be worn together or separately and the busy fabric can disguise stains from even the busiest day on the playground.
