Mommy/Daughter Day

I bought this cute corduroy dress for Little Sister at a thrift store for $2, but she refused to wear it because it had cute 3/4 length sleeves, and she does NOT like sleeves that don't come all the way to her wrist (who knew?)  I wasn't ready to abandon the dress completely, so I cut off the dress's sleeves past the shoulder (so I didn't have to deal with setting in a new sleeve), found a few scraps of a cute knit print (not big enough to make a whole new sleeve anyway!) and made some tubes that I attached to turn it into a long sleeve, and voila, now she loves it!

Plus, I couldn't resist putting on my matching shirt (that's where the scraps came from in the first place).  I can't do full head-to-toe matching, but sharing a fabric in our outfits is pretty fun.

Little Sister had fun playing along with me taking some photos, but they were a little too hard to tell that the print actually matched.

Hey, are we wearing matching outfits?!

Later today, we will be getting all dolled up to go see Fancy Nancy at the local children's theater--Little Sister has had her outfit and accessories laid out for days, and she has definite opinions about my outfit as well.  Jeans are definitely not allowed, and high heels will be involved.  Can't wait to see what I'll be wearing!

Edited--how could I leave you hanging like that?  Here we are, ready for our theatrical outing:

Little Sister is wearing her Easter dress, which...I'm pretty sure I haven't blogged that yet, right?
