One for me and one for the little boy
It’s a rite of passage really, for a sewist with children, or child as the case may be. Really. At least that’s what I am telling myself. If you are not of strong stomach, you might want to skip this post.
I made Jack and me matching clothes.
There. I said it. And I will even admit that I might do it again. My friend Kellie in Texas has promised to send me her copy of a vintage shirt pattern so I can make a cute plaid seersucker shirt for myself. And I bought enough of that fabric to make a camp shirt for the little boy who lives with me too.
But today’s matching outfit is bottoms, a madras skirt for me (NL 6035 again) and madras shorts for Jack (S 5284 in sz 6 with Dana’s flat front pants tutorial). The fabric is from Mood. I blame Peter for starting my madras obsession. This fabric is super cute if a little difficult to work with pattern matching wise. I tried to match the lines of squares, but they are somewhat irregular. So in some places, the match is less than desirable.
Here we are together in our matching glory!
I love my skirt and think Jack looks super cute in his shorts. This doesn’t look too matchy-matchy, does it? I think it’s pretty tame. I don’t think the photo of the two of us will end up on Awkward Family Photos site, right? And I think I am cured of the sudden madras obsession. Now I really gotta get to my niece’s bday dresses.
