She's going to hate me...

... when she grows up. I made myself a red winter skirt after hunting the shops for something I liked and not finding it. Giving up in disgust I went to Spotlight and found some nice wool cashmere poly-something-or-other mix. It was expensive but fortunately I didn't need too much just for a skirt. I got enough to make a little dress for DD as well.

"Mother and Daughter matching clothes! That's so 70's!" I can hear the cries of a teenage daughter already. I am making the most of the chance I have now to dress her how I like.

I got some felt and wool to do the decorations so now I feel more confident about decorating Mel's bags I'm giving to my sister and SIL for their birthdays in September.

  2. OMG, 70's is right!! My mother used to do that!!! There are lots of photos of her and I wearing matching dresses!! But that little red dress is VERY cute ... as long as you don't wear them at the same time! ;-)

  4. I LOVE RED! You are so clever. I do not sew at all and I often wish I could as I like slightly quirky clothes that I can never seem to find. I love what you've made- and the matching thing is very cool (don't let anyone say otherwise!).
