So, I still have UFOs
But since 2012 (except last year) I’ve made something to wear for Easter… This year I thought
it if I start now maybe I can make a matching set for my daughter and I…
So here is the almost done dress for my daughter
I need to add the trim to the sleeves and bottom, and the obvious weave in the ends… Then I’ll start on mine…
Mine will be a tunic length top in either mauve (ish) color or black… I’m liking the idea of ours color coordinating, but I HATE pink and it runs a little close to pink to me…
I reconfigured @twobrothersblankets Jayda Top into toddler size and added decreases so that the skirt will flare (ETA: it’s worked bottom up), then changed the trim as I don’t want ribbing at the bottom of the skirt and wanted all the trim to match. I’m kind of thinking about using the same trim on mine, even though ribbing would be perfectly acceptable…
Yarn: Woolike in purple
Hook: Yarn Mania Interchangeable lighted hook in 4.50mm
This is so cute, and i love the mother/daughter matching idea!!
That’s beautiful! I love the matching idea!
THANKS! I usually don’t go for the mother daughter matching outfits, but when they coordinate I’m a little more on board… But again not always I’m weird, I know… I usually just find it annoying
But I thought, a dress and a tunic are different, even if using the same stitch pattern… But that’s part of my struggle with the color… Do I want to coordinate and know that I may never wear the top again or do I go with black which is my wardrobe almost entirely and know I’ll wear it many times?
Cute. Maybe you could “match” by wearing a purple shirt under your tunic and a “black” (if that’s what yours is) under hers? Then you wouldn’t have to wear the purple shirt as often.
I say to do something you will actually wear again! And i like the idea @HookedByMarilyn suggested!
So ironically, she will have a black dress under hers (ETA: it’s the only solid color dress she has)… I don’t have a purple tank, but could maybe go light blue, so again coordinating but not matching…
Yeah, having something you will use later on its way better, like its time consumend into something you wont actually enjoy [making nor wearing]!
yes absolutely but i have mostly red and whitr so those colors and i have less tgan 100 yds of black
Thank you for all the compliments! I’m pretty happy with it and looking forward to finishing!
Put a red skirt or shirt under your black dress. . And leave hers alone. Red, purple, and black coordinate. Perhaps you could wear purple earrings, purple scarf around your neck, purple stockings, purple shoes, purple bracelet……
So I have a red tank top that is close to the mauve yarn (but a little less pink)… That might be a nice compromise… Or I might just be happy with the fact that they are made from the same stitch pattern
