I am a Mama who loves her children matching for as LONG as I can do it.
I dreamed of having two girls to dress up alike many a day when I first had a second girlie in my arms.
Then reality hit.
It's HARD to play matchy matchy with girls so far different in ages. Unless I spent trillions of dollars (or close). OR sewed all their clothes.
Now I like to sew, but I am a SLOW sewer and not only that-but that might still cost me thousands (it's expensive, I tell ya!)
So when I saw some shirred skirts on super clearance at Target I snatched up two, both size 7. One for the eldest. And one, modified, for the baby.
I stitched a seam along the side and cut off the excess to make a dress body. Added some embroidered grosgrain for straps and VOILA!
PLus, the "excess" was just enough for two coordinated hair pieces.
I love it when that happens.
And I REALLY love matchy matchy.
Seems to me, I have a similar colored Polo shirt JUST Andrew's size....
