I always make my girls matching Easter dresses.  My older daughter is now 11.  I figured she is probably tired of matching her 5 yr old sister.  This year I used the same fabric, but made them different outfits.  I used fabric that I already had on hand.  It is blue quilting cotton I bought 2 years ago, & never used.  Maddie's pinafore is made with McCall's 4648.  I don't think you can see it in the photo, but there are pintucks down the front of the bodice.  It is very sweet.  I let her  look through my patterns & this is what she picked.  Sarah's skirt is Butterick 4722.  I always stock up on patterns when Hancock's runs them for 0.99.  I've had both patterns probably 3 years.  It's the first time I've used the skirt pattern & I love it.  I will be making her more like this.  I didn't have time to make their shirts.  There was a women's store going out of business.  I got two petite tuxedo blouses for $1 each.  I took Sarah's up a little, & made Maddie's short-sleeved.  It worked out great.  Thanks for looking!

I just took a better look at my photos.  The color is actually more blue than it appears.  It is a sweet baby blue/white flower print.
