I don't normally go in for matchy-matchy, as a rule. But I made an exception. I had ordered this sweet bird print to make a wee dress for Pickle. Then Miss B saw it, and loved it.
I had only ordered half a yard: plenty for a baby dress, not enough for much of anything for a nine-year-old. So I split the fabric up. (Pardon the lack of ironing and the odd stray thread in the photos. I snag my pics when I can, and there's not a whole lot of time for styling these days.)
I found this slate-coloured corduroy at the fabric store, and used some purple velvet ribbon I had on hand, and voila, matching girls.
Pickle's dress closes with a single button in the back. Miss B's skirt has a plain elastic waist.
(Again: pay no attention to the loose threads. )
Pickle's feet are far too interesting for her to look up at the camera. But those cheeks are magnificent, aren't they?
