Little Dutch Girl

This dutch costume is from my Mom or Oma from a few years ago. All Katie is missing is a pair of klompen!


Which grandmother do you think she looks like here? Joan or Jacqui?

  1. My mom made this costume for my sister, Miriam in 1971 right before we moved from Scotland to the Netherlands. Miriam was 4. I had my costume to match; I was 9.

  3. I remember wearing that and doing the dance in my Klompe... the song "als de vader and de moeder naar the mark to gain, oh ya, ya so" (pardon my limited grasp of Dutch spelling"... so nice to see family continue to share and wear it!I remember wearing that and doing the dance in my Klompe... the song "als de vader and de moeder naar the mark to gain, oh ya, ya so" (pardon my limited grasp of Dutch spelling"... so nice to see family continue to share and wear it!
