Mother-Son Matching

 Hello Readers. It is the last of what I am calling, "Second Summer". It is always warm here until suddenly, it is winter. I decided to take advantage of this time to make a matching mother and son outfit for myself and my youngest.

 This dress was really cute. I found it at a swap and loved the stripes. I thought it would match a shirt that my son had. It isn't an exact match but it is close enough for me. Mother and son outfits are not easy to find so I really wanted this one.


 The knit dress was a little big but it is easy to alter the size of a dress like this.

 I tried the dress on inside out and marked where I wanted to make new side seams. I marked it with chalk so you could see it. Some people like to use pins to mark the new side seams but I always prick myself and it just makes me so mad.

 You can see the new side seams and I also shortened the dress. It was a knit cotton, did not fray at all and it was easy to work with.  I wanted a shorter more casual dress.

I liked the new dress. It was easy to wear and the knit fabric was very comfortable in the heat. It is 83 degrees outside! 

My son got tired of taking pictures very quickly. I only took 2 pictures of him and then he got some chocolate caramel cookies. Yes, bribery was involved in the making of this blog post. 
Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

***Chickie's Year End Review-I loved this matching look but my son? Not so much.

Love the Mom-Little Boy co-ordination! The dress with its dark background will be fine later in the fall when worn with a dark cardigan or jacket. It's a transition piece.

Thanks KD! I thought it was a good dress for different seasons too.
