It's not too late for Easter pictures right? :o)

It was a HOT day in SC - 91 degrees. The day before I had to make a last minute wardrobe change for Caleb so he wouldn't be too hot. His was the first of the easter outfits I made, but long pants would not have been fun for my very sweaty little boy that day!
I basically made the same thing as the first, just in a short version.
Samuel was so excited to have a real tie, not just a clip-on one. It's made with really pretty white linen. 
I designed his shirt, and the shorts came from an Ottobre pattern.

How did Caleb get so big so fast? 
I used a 1940's pattern for his and Josiah's shirts and added piping.

Josiah gives me these eyes sometimes and I just think about all the things that he will surely get because of them :o)
Don't let him fool you though, he is quite mischievous!!!
I used a 70's pattern for his shorts, and the vest is my pattern.

Josiah had a bit of an attitude about getting his picture taken, but if we waited for each boy to be looking at the camera and smiling at the same time we would have 0 pictures of the whole family :o)

I kind of wish you could see who was crying at my feet in this pic :o).

I made my dress last summer, and Tim's tie from a men's dress shirt that was passed our way. (Thanks Matt!)

I love those pink cheeks!!

And just for fun, here's a close-up of Josiah's bad attitude.
I like that tiny tear he managed to squeeze out (hoping for some sympathy I think) :o)

Thank you so much Sarah for the great pictures!

make it wear it

  2. I love that you used handmade piping on the collars of the shirts that matches the vests and jumper. Great Easter outfits. I feel happy seeing your beautiful family pictures.
