clan wear




As if the blond hair were not enough to announce to the world that these girls are sisters, two little matching dresses should help. Remember the matching mother/daughter Laura Ashley dresses from the 80's? I think I'm feeling deprived from never having belonged to this exclusive group of wearers. Thus I sewed a pair of clan dresses to define my little clan. I don't think I would go to the point of wearing a matching dress myself--a bit over-the-top perhaps!

Too cute! And go the whole way and make a trio.

Those are way cute dresses. Plus the girls are cute themselves.

yes, mama matching might be over the top, but i think you guys would pull it off with such finesse! i was never for sisters looking matchy-matchy, but this is really irresistible!

Very cute! I was just looking at old photos of me and my sisters... three blondes... and I just posted one photo before I came to your blog! Your girls look like they could be my kids more than my own children--they look like me and my sisters! We only have one photo of all three of us matching. My mom loved to sew dresses for us too!

Very sweet. I love the matchiness.

I don't mind matching my daughter. She's the only girl out of six. And, she has brown hair, unlike her blond brothers and mama. I don't know if people know we're related.

those are SO cute!! i love that fabric.

sometimes i find that we all are matching by accident, or coordinate kind of. i guess it's almost subliminal!

Very cute. Thanks again for your lovely comments recently.

Dig her tights!

Prue said...

Really cute. Love the striped leggings/tights too! Being a twin I hate twins dressed in the same thing, but ordinary siblings look cute.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

So precious! The letters! The tights!

Laura said...

How beautiful! I'm going to sew my initial everywhere! Very lovely idea.

Joslyn said...
