We had our family pictures scheduled in November, and I spent some time trying to figure out what everyone was going to wear. I wanted us to match, but not be "matchy- matchy."
So, I found a beautiful purple heather sweater knit and made myself this wrap style dress.
Close up of the top part. One of the best things about a wrap style dress is that it's nursing friendly =)
And then I found an adorable pattern for a little girl's kimono style jacket. It's still a bit big on Sweet Pea, but she'll grow into it =)
Then I decided I liked the style so much that I wanted one for Girly- girl as well. But, the pattern wasn't sized for her. My first attempt at sizing up/ drafting a pattern. I think it turned out pretty good =)
I wanted it to be slightly different, so I added some flower trim around the edges. (And it's hanging crooked on the hanger. The one side really doesn't hang that much lower).
Girly- girl seems happy with it =)
And here we are. See, we all match, but aren't "matchy- matchy."
