One of my nieces calls it "matchy-matchy" when people dress alike... hence the title for the story of my daughter and my's matching Easter outfits. Ellie had the idea for her Daddy to take a picture of us from the back. I think it turned out cute. I like the way you can see our pony tails and the flower I made for them. Also, I thought my hair was lighter than hers, but in this picture it looks like the exact same color. Lately we have had quite a few people say how much she is looking like me. I think it's fun to dress alike. Actually, I still like to dress like my mother.
|I got our t-shirts a Walmart. Mine is from the ladies department, and has a v-neck, nice and high, which is the style of neck I like the best. Ellie's is from the girls department, and has a high scoop neck, which is the style she likes the best. The brown on the bottom of the skirt was a note from the author of the Angry Chicken blog on a repin on Pinterest on making a 5 minute skirt. She has this great tutorial on how to hem with bias tape. I believe it was real time saver and also added a nice little extra to the skirt.|
|I made our flower pony tale holders and these flower pins the same way I did our flower headbands.|
The difference was that I used a smaller pattern for the circles. This time, I used the mouth of a shot glass (I don't drink alcohol, never have, but I have this cute little collection of shot glasses from different trips we've taken. I like the pictures and how small and inexpensive they are as souvenirs.). I used a lid of some sort at my friend's house to make the other pattern.
|I stitched a safety pin on the back before I added the "petals".|
I've already told Ellie I want to wear these again for Mother's Day, and hopefully the weather will be warm enough for us to wear our sandals.
