Sewing for Mommy and Baby

I wanted to make a special baby shower gift for Esme and I was fortunate enough to find this sweet little dress pattern online from Lelia and Ben. I loved sewing this pattern! The directions were easy to understand, and the dress was so simple to sew. The best part of the pattern is that the sizes ranged from 12 months to 5t so I can make another one for my niece who needs a different size!

I had enough fabric left over to make a matching top for Esme. I found a simplicity pattern that looked similar to the Lelia and Ben dress. What mom and daughter wouldn't want a matching top and dress? Back in the day when I was little, my mom used to make us  matching dresses, and occasionally my sisters and I wore matching clothes too. So what a better opportunity then this to bring back a little old-fashion tradition of matching mommy and daughter apparel.
