Back in the day (I love saying that), baby's clothing came with the grand name of a layette. Like this amazing concotion ... bonnets, booties, dress, matinee jacket, vest. The list is endless.
But the downside was it was made from bri-nylon or synthetic mixes. In any event everything tended to end up as as rough as a Brillo pad ...calling it rough would be an understatement.
This photo should give you a bit of an idea ... eldest daughter Miss W during mid 1986 when she was about five months old wearing a yellow synthetic matinee jacket made by moi. It has a matching bonnet (love that word) to be found in some other photo ... which I didn't find tonight.
