I Shall Call Her “Mini-Me”

I thought it might be fun to make some matching dresses for Guinevere and I.

No, absolutely not those kind of matching dresses. I made skater dresses.

Mine has 3/4 sleeves and hers has long sleeves, but we were cold so we didn’t take our jackets off for pictures. We were too busy trying to think of poses to really remember to show the dress sleeves anyway.

What should we do now? 

Since she likes to do ballet poses in her pictures, we decided to do ballet poses. Here’s 3rd position.

We also worked on teaching her the stereotypical blogger’s pose.

How do I do it, Mom?

I got this.

An hour or two after we did the photo-shoot, I realized that the neckline on her dress seemed high…she was wearing it backwards. Oops. I guess I need to start putting tags in her clothes.

And on a side note while looking for the most horrifying mother/daughter pattern option I could find to start off this post, I stumbled upon this gorgeous bit of vintage mother/daughter inspiration.

It is definitely getting colder outside. We were joined by Ace, dressed much more weather appropriately.

We’ll end with a shot of our best side(s).

      Thanks. I did knit the hat quite a while ago. You can find the pattern on Ravelry as a free download. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/minion-hat
