Following on from the awesome day we had Saturday, it was time to celebrate Mother’s Day with our extended family in Sydney.
My Grandmother and Grandad came to lunch with us and my Uncle, Aunt, and cousins ~ and I have to say, I think that’s really special. My children have two great grandparents to enjoy! That’s also four generations of women on my mother’s side, which is pretty amazing.
We all got dressed up in pretty dresses, and yes, Charlotte was supposed dressed up in a pretty dress too! But she was sleeping, so she’s snuggled up in her spring time wrap that is a special gift from when she was born instead.
Despite the cooler autumn weather, spring time was the inspiration for these mother and daughter outfits, mostly because my new me-made skirt has a delightful pastel pink and lilac floral print on a mint background. Yes, this circle skirt is actually my March “Sewing All The Things” make. I really did make it in March, I swear!! It’s just that it’s taken me this long to get the photographs of it. (> o <)’
It doesn’t mark off any of my goals from the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge, as this pattern might be vintage, but it is self drafted and neither “a vintage sewing pattern, nor a reproduction vintage pattern”. That’s alright though because pastel! Pockets! Gold buttons! All the fun things! (＾ ε ＾) ♡
Did you do anything special for Mother’s Day this year? I loved the chance to dress up in matching outfits with my daughters, as I probably won’t be able to con them into matching outfits when they are older. Have you ever worn Mother & Daughter outfits before? Would you do it now?
