A new/old Easter tradition :)

Growing up, I remember my mom loved to put my sisters and I in matching outfits. I think with every holiday we would have matching dresses to wear to church and I think there was even a summer where we had matching bathing suits. Yeah, I so wish I had pictures to show :) This year I thought it would be fun for Paul and I to match on Easter Sunday.

I made the tie from a pattern I already had {McCall's 2447} and I made the skirt using a tutorial online {...although I changed it slightly...}. Both the tie and skirt were relatively easy to make. I did have to spend a little time re-learning some sewing techniques since I had not used my sewing machine since last year! It was really fun to sew again and now I feel like my sewing machine deserves some major lovin' so watch out...I might start making things like crazy.

I'm so grateful that Paul supports me with all my festive holiday ideas. It probably seemed silly to him for us to have matching outfits, but he knew it meant a lot to me so he just went with it. We had a wonderful Easter weekend visiting family and friends and also reflecting on the life of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer.
