Like Mother

... like daughter.

This is another 3835 dress for me (and Simplicity 4206 for Spenser). Again, they were made from a thrifted sheet that has been hanging around for almost two years. It was a twin fitted sheet, so it was a little more challenging to make two dresses (hence the reason Spenser's is a little short).

We have the matching dresses. She is now happy. Well, almost happy. One of the first things she said (after her enormous smile) was, "Where are my pockets?"

(Please try your best to ignore my crazy-mad-scientist hair. I hadn't styled it before the photo and I told my husband not to get it in the photo ... Somehow it still got in.)

Oh. My. Goodness. LOVE them!!!

a) NOT frumpy (even a little bit).
b) I like the pockets.
c) Could Spenser be any cuter? I think not.

Too cute! I love matchy matchy.

P/S : My hair looks unstyled all the time....the curse of wavy hair. Yours looks ok to me.
