They've Come Out The Other Side!!!

Long before pillowcase dresses were in vogue I made these fun little numbers for the girls to wear on a cruise. I didn't realize it at the time, but that was the last time I made my girls matching clothes. (I hate last's because you never know that that's what they are until years pass and you think, "wow, that was the last time I ever....whatever it was").

Shortly after that Miss Liesl, who was about 8 at the time, announced that nobody else wears home made clothes and she didn't like it. I was so sad that that part of my mommyhood was over.

Well, I was wrong! Apparently they go through this weird little pre-teen/teenage vortex and eventually come out the other side. In my case, begging me to make them clothes! I was so excited that I got right on that!!!!

Here they are in their little knit jumpers, with ruffly hems. The fun thing is that aside from the fabric being different (colorful for Erika because, well, she's colorful and tie die for Liesl since she's my funky hippy girl) they wanted matching dresses. Ahhhhhh....my little girls are back (insert tear wiping here)!
These dresses were so easy.....no pattern needed! One of these days I'll whip up a tutorial for them.

Erika, my scissor happy fashionista.

Liesl, my funky hippy girl.

And there's Nate, my little line backer.
(Big B was snoring away during this little photo shoot, he's not big on pictures.)


  1. I wished my grandaughters would wear dresses. They are hip, sheek, totally cool. I like them.

  2. No pattern needed? What? If you make a tutorial let me know PA-LEASE!! I would love to make a mini version for my daughter to be! Thanks for sharing your darling ideas! PS I love your girls.

  3. How sweet! I love the look of matching clothes! I have older boys now, so there's not much chance of anything matching now. :)

    This is my first time at your blog...it's beautiful.
