so how do we feel about matching mother-daughter outfits?

    Fantastic picture!

    I received as a gift two Hanna Andersson matching dresses. One for me, one for my daughter. We wore them once. DD looked completely cute in her little dress. But I felt like a dork and it didn’t help that the dress just wasn’t my style anyway.

    We also have matching Foofa TShirts from the show Yo Gabba Gabba. Delilah goes CRAZY when I wear it. I look silly wearing a preschoolers TV show character T, but my kid loves it so I go with it.

    I won’t be making or buying any other matchy matchy outfits for me and D. I might be tempted to use some coordinating fabrics for family photo pics. Like use fabrics from the same collection for different garments. But that’s as close as I think I should get.

    BUT – I did make DH a tie using some pretty AMH voile, and plan on making D a matching dress for a Father/Daughter dance. I think matching with Daddy is adorable.

    Liesl, I can’t believe you shared that picture for the world to see! so funny. That’s not exactly what I had in mind when I said “matching.” I really really would not dress myself in a replica of my baby’s outfit. What I had in mind is more like coordinating. I was thinking more that the scraps left over from a grown up dress are just the right size to make something for the baby.

    However, for Easter, I’m planning ties for the boys from the same fabric as her dress. That probably won’t happen often, either, because Christmas and Easter clothes are prime hand me downs. Only DS1 gets a new Christmas outfit. DS2 wears that one two years later. I stick to a red-based outfit so it looks OK in Photos. When it comes to ready to wear sibling outfits, btw, I’ve been through this one for the past three years and I have to say that it’s nearly impossible to find two “coordinating” boy outfits in sizes 2 and 4, though it’s easy to find two of the same thing. The effort involved in making them appear nicely coordinated will eventually wear thin.

    But little girls matching their dollies is always cute, right? I can’t wait for that stage!

    I vote for matching clothes for girls and dolls, but I don’t care for mother/daughter matching. That said, I remember BEGGING my mom to make us matching dresses and I think she did.

    runcible, yes! I have that one, and I think also another book that’s very similar.
