This was so exciting for me. Matching but not overly matchy-matchy clothes to wear on Easter Sunday for the boys.
Of Course there's no pictures of them both looking at the camera and smiling, but that's life. This photo-shoot was actually the pre-easter trial run anyway. I wanted to make sure they fit right. Owen's is a bit big, if I wanted to have it fit perfectly, I should have used the 12 month pattern but I opted for 18 mo. It looks good though. The romper was downloaded from YouCanMakeThis.com. It was quite doable for a novice sewer like myself.
About a week ago, I found THIS pattern for a little boy's tie. I found the pattern so simple to follow, but I shortened the tie since D is so young. I also used the interfacing from one of Andy's ugly ties. It was perfect considering I really didn't have enough of this fabric to make Deacon a matching romper, and he's getting a bit old for these anyway.
Andy found matching blue shirts with the tags still on at the thrift store for $.25 each! Those were a great score and Deacon's pants were only a couple of dollars also. They were in beautiful condition. It helps to keep your eyes open at the thrift stores.
A few ladies at church told me that they have sewing machines and really have no idea what to do with them. SO... I'm thinking of starting a very small sewing group so that we can share our knowledge with each-other. I just need to find some ladies that actually know how to sew so that they can help the rest of us!
Late in the evening, Andy asked me to hem the pants for a newer suit that he has acquired. So we got them a few inches shorter so he could look classy for his first Easter Sunday as a minister. Isn't he so handsome?
