I wanted to take their pics before Sunday because our church starts at 9:00 and it’s a bit difficult getting out the door all ready and presentable as it is. And I really dislike taking pictures in stressful situations!
Besides our Christmas pictures last year, this is the only time I’ve coordinated my boys and little girl, and I love it!
Ok, let’s break down the clothes for you: B’s dress is made from New Look pattern #6688. I liked the pattern—you could probably easily figure it out yourself.
The fabric is vintage fabric and I LOVE it. My mother-in-law gave it to me, so according to her, it is fabric from the 60’s or 70’s. It’s very high quality as well—nice, thick and soft. It maybe has a little polyester in it, as it doesn’t wrinkle very easily either.
The tulle sewed onto the lining of the skirt portion really helps it poof out, which is part of what she loves so much. The other part that she loves is how far it twirls out, since it is a circle shape on the bottom and perfect for twirling. Reminds me of many cute pictures people post of Dana’s circle skirt!
For my handsome boys I made them a tie using Purl Bee’s tutorial HERE. The Moda fabric is great because the dots look like Easter eggs. And I lucked out finding some shirts to match B’s dress because the ties wouldn’t have looked all that great with a white shirt.
It’s been raining here like crazy and the sun came out during the pictures, and my oldest said, “Mom, it’s ALWAYS too bright when you take pictures!” He really has some sensitive eyes. Because that statement would be true. It always seems to be too bright for him to smile at me for pictures ;).
Now they are all matchy matchy (however, not green squared) for Easter! Oh, how I love these sweet kids!
