Wardrobe Wednesday


I found this fabric at the craft store a few years ago and I'm hooked. These adorable dresses are so simple to make that I bet a monkey with a stapler could come up with similar results. The top of the dress is elastic so all you need to do is measure, cut and sew one straight seam. I went the extra mile and added shoulder straps, for a more modest look.

Yes, these photos are from today and yes that is Mae (and Binny) running around outside. She still had a low fever this morning but she says she feels fine. I've been giving her Tylenol to keep her fever down but other than that she seems normal. Mae's doctor called this morning to check on her too which eased my mind.
This afternoon, the girls and I went to the Farmer's Market in town and bought some asparagus and a few cheap perennials. They both wore the black sundresses out and not one person asked me if they were twins. That must be a new record. When will old ladies with nothing better to talk about people get it that just because they happen to be wearing the same dress, that doesn't necessarily mean that they have the same DNA?
And because I'm feeling nostalgic today, here's a photo of my dad and the girls wearing the same style dresses 2 years ago

Adorable dresses! I think I would have a tough time even sewing a straight seam, though...

Very cool dresses.

Here's hoping that all continues to go well with Mae.

I used to babysit a boy who was my sons age. They looked NOTHING alike, were not dressed alike and people would still ask me if they were twins! Huh?

I keep seeing that kind of fabric. I might break down and buy some myself.

I think a monkey with a stapler would STILL do better than I would...

I would love to start sewing some clothing. I just have absolutely no confidence. I'm self-taught and I can barely do my quilts straight.

Great photos. What fascinates me is that both your daughters hair has gone blonder as they've got older. That's unsual. My two have gone darker.

I'm picturing the monkey with the stapler. Sounds dangerous to me!

They are soooo cute; love those dresses! I've seen that fabric but my son would have a fit... Glad to hear that Mae's running around!

Funnyrunner, This is why I was meant to have girls. Dresses I can do, but make me sew leg holes, forget it.

t.t.milllers, I know!

Out in them sticks, This would be a great starter project and would look oh so cute on Ladybug!

Joe, You see it too? Especially in the summer, their hair turns almost white.

Sidhe, Ha!

They are adorable girls and dresses.

My mom use to do that all the time with my brother and I.

I hated it! The last thing I wanted was to look like my brother....it's that independent thing.

I hope Mae keeps getting better. The dresses are sooo cute. I don't have two girls to dress up. I've seen that fabric, maybe I should look for some before Hawaii. Yeah, in my "spare" time. :) Very very cute.
