Now, I should probably wait until Easter to "unveil" their new duds, but I'm too excited. I had an outfit planned for Teddy for Easter that I was super-excited about. But all of a sudden last week I was starting to rethink myself. Was it too dark for a happy spring holiday? What if it was crazy hot like it would have been last year? And, I kind of really wanted to sew another pair of longalls since it's probably his last Easter for them.
So, like any person would do, I made a poll on facebook! At first it seemed like his bow tie outfit would win, but in the end there was a lot of support for longalls. I went to the fabric store that night and the very next day I finished them!
I love the anchor buttons. I thought about lining them in navy, but I decided to match the blue to the flowers in Tillie's dress. There's only so long that they'll let me do this! The aqua is a linen blend and the royal is Kona cotton. I made the 18m size and they're a little big. Maybe Teddy will have a growth spurt this month? (fingers crossed.)
Tillie's dress was my dress when I was little. Even better? My mom made it for me! I love that both kiddos will be wearing hand-made items this Easter.
Here's the proof that it was mine. Here I am with my brother, Philip. I know there are better pictures of the dress, but I couldn't find them yesterday. If you look closely you can see my baby ring as a necklace. Hopefully I'll remember to do that with Tillie's. I gave her a blue ribbon sash instead of red so it would coordinated with Teddy better. She's going to wear a red cardigan though.
