Some Valentine Fun

I finished the girls' Valentine's Day outfits in the nick of time for their much anticipated party. I was happy that they each got an individual look instead of my usual over-the-top matchiness which has been causing people to ask me if we have triplets instead of twins...yikes!

Maddy's outfit was made with some fabulous Alexander Henry fabric. The colors are so rich and the fabric lends itself so well to this pattern...the Gracie pattern from Sandi Henderson's Portabello Pixie line. The pants are her single ruffle pants pattern. I LOVE this pattern and can't wait to make another one. They definitely run true to size though. She was on the borderline between a 3 and 4, so I went with the 3 since they are small for their age and usually swim in their clothes, but she definitely could have used a 4. Thank goodness it's 65 out because we're not squeezing a tshirt on under that top. Oh, and Maddy announced this morning, "Look, I'm a boutique!"

For Gabby I made the ruffle and ruche skirt from YouCanMakeThis. So easy with my new that rolled I just need a ruffle foot:)

Ana got the big girl look with a monogram applique tshirt. Applique pattern is from Embroidery Boutique. I love this alphabet because it really shows off the applique fabric.
