Handmade dresses for my girls

I love handmade clothing. Mostly because it is unique and no one else around will have it.  When my sister in law (husbands brother’s wife) offered to make something for my girls, I told her I had a stash of fabric that I had planned to do something with, that she could use.  I then searched all over online to find some cute ideas, and told her what I wanted. I photographed her family last summer, and she wanted to share her skills with me–I am so grateful! She wanted to see pics, so last Sunday when my girls wore them to church, I snapped a bunch of them in my foyer (with the front door open–lovely light).  I narrowed them down to these faves:

It was pretty much impossible to get the timing right with the two of them….

They’ve become fairly willing models for me…;)

{Stay tuned for another post this afternoon on a deal I want to make with you…my friendly readers.}

  2. These are darling. Having my children match for church is one of those things… I’m trying to let go as they get older, but the more children I have the more compelled I am to color coordinate! It is an illness. I love the dresses and the sweet smiles. They look like they love each other. :)
