Tag You're it! with Coordinated Cuties

Well, I gave you a sneak peak as to what my girls would be wearing fro Easter, but now you get the real thing! I was so stinkin' excited the night before as I was working on them and seeing them come out so well! I absolutely love them! And so did the girls! 
I loved seeing their faces when they each saw their own set done and how they looked as they put them on. I could see in their face that they loved them and that they felt special! Mission accomplished and soooooo worth the lack of sleep for me! ;)
 Above is a close up of the shirts I made to match the skirts. I bought the white shirt at Target and created my own stencil to paint the bead necklaces on. I had to do one, and then let it dry before doing the other, since they overlapped on some. Then I made a fabric rosette (again with coordinating fabric to pin onto the bead necklace.)

 For the hair clips. I did more of the rosettes. (I think I made a total of 17 rosettes. They are easy, but with that many...it took a little while.) On two of the clips I did a variation of sizes, in coordinating fabrics with their skirts, of 5 flowers. On the one below, I decided to just do four rosettes and added some frayed edge white leaves to embellish it a bit too. I attached all of the rosettes to a fabric backing, and then to an alligator clip. This way they can clip them to headbands OR wear them as is.
Now, the skirts! I got my PDF pattern from a shop on etsy: Lateedakids. I actually bought her 3 pack of skirt patterns. I made the first skirt for my niece a few weeks ago and didn't use a pattern. I just winged it and made up my own. BUT it was easier to figure out all the different sizes with Lateedakids' patterns. Less work for me. :) And her instructions were great! Sizes seemed pretty true to size too. I was very happy with them! You can also find Lateedakids on FB here.

I let the girls help choose their own fabrics, but I chose the top and bottom little panels and did the same on each girl's skirt. So they were all coordinate, but still different. And really, you can make this skirt with sooo little fabric. Just scraps if you want with all the different panels. I used five different fabrics for the panels on the one below, 4 on the blue skirt, and 8 different fabrics on the pink and orange one...just what I liked and had...
And just so you know, I DO include my boys in Easter pics... :) Although they don't prefer to be so coordinated. They were each happy with their new shirts and ties though. 
 And I can't resist posting these!

Love my kids and had sooooo very much fun sewing these easy and adorable outfits this Easter! Told my boys they MAY get coordinated ties next year with the girls. They were NOT excited. ha!
