W has always been appreciative of clothing. Give her a new dress and a toy, and she’ll immediately put on the dress. I’ve made her some special outfits, but I thought she might like to have an outfit that matches Mommy’s. I turned to Jarita from Handy Stitches for assistance in picking out the perfect mother and daughter outfits for me and my little girl.
Jarita has a number of matching outfits that would be perfect for W and me. Any of the sets can be customized for length and fabric selection. If you can’t find the fabric you are looking for among the ones in stock, she can order it for you. Among the mother and daughter outfits, you can find dresses which can be made with or without sleeves:
aprons in full length or bib styles:
and skirts in mixed or single fabrics:
She also sells individual pieces for women and girls, as well as grandmother sets, father and son robes, baby quilts, and custom bags.
I asked Jarita to make a custom set of skirts for W and me. She was very helpful in picking out fabric for us and making sure our measurements were correct. Sometimes I’m not so great at measuring fabric and I have wasted many a yard cutting the wrong length.
W’s skirt was made long enough to last her a couple of seasons, which is good because she’s growing like a weed! I love the fabric that we decided on–it’s so pretty.
I went a little shorter than my usual maxi length and I couldn’t be more pleased. No more tripping over my hem!
The skirts are also the perfect length for splashing in the pool. Such a blessing during these hot, summer days!
I am so glad to have found Jarita and Handy Stiches. You can find many items like this and more in the Handy Stitches shop on Etsy. You can also watch for new items available on the Handy Stitches fan page.
