For the record, my mother never dressed my sisters and I in matching clothes so I don't know where my obsession with matching outfits comes from. It's quite possible that its origin lies in watching the Sound of Music far too many times (you know, when all the Von Trapp family kids prance around town in matching outfits made out of curtains...yeah, that's totally going to be our family. Ha!).
In any case, I seem to have a bit of an obsession with matching clothes and because of my on-going obsession, it seems only right that this new baby should learn at a early age that she and O will be wearing matching clothes for many years to come.
So with the leftover fabric from this little shirt, I made O a dress with the help of an Oliver and S knit dress pattern. It's the first time that I've sewn with this pattern and when I started the dress I told my husband that I was just going downstairs to sew for a couple minutes...and then before I knew it, I had the entire dress finished. I love a project like that. It's as if the dress magically sewed itself.
And O actually seems to like her new little dress. In fact there was no bribing her with candy to dress her up in it for an unseasonably warm afternoon at the park. And that, my friends, is what I like to call a success.
