Match With Me: coordinating mother-son looks!

I’ve always been one of those moms who coordinates her kids’ outfits. I love putting my boys all in plaid button downs or blazers. But I’ve never done any coordinating with them myself. Well this officially ends that! Enter Stacey at Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts and her super fun Match With Me series – all about making coordinating outfits for mamas and their sons!
DSC_0509I decided pretty early on that I wanted to sew outfits with a coordinating color palette. And I am in loooove with how it turned out!

My three-year-old and I each got a cardigan, plus a shirt for him and a knit dress for me.

I’m obsessed with this mustard color, and I adore how it looks with my little guy’s hair. He loved that we got to match with our “new clothes.” He insisted on wearing this outfit two days in a row and was pretty put off that I didn’t want to join him the second day. ;)

Here are some outfit details for me: Cambridge Cardigan from Peek-a-boo Patterns (affiliate link) in a lacey stripe knit from JoAnn’s. I let the ends of the knit curl, rather than adding the cuffs to the sleeves and the body. With this dress, though, I wish I had made the cardigan longer. But it will be a good length for wearing with jeans.

This dress… Sigh. Oh, THIS DRESS. I love it so, so much. It’s made out of this absolutely amazing Anna Maria Horner knit that I bought from a local shop, Bungalow Quilting and Yarn. I used the Union St. Tee pattern from Hey June and lengthened it to make a dress. I want to live in this dress.

The details on my little guy’s look: a simple mustard knit Vintage V-Neck from Blank Slate Patterns (affiliate link), which is always a good choice.

This cardigan… well, I wish I had made it for me. This Robert Kauffman Laguna knit is so fantastic (also from Bungalow Quilting). The pattern is the Cool Cardigan from Blank Slate Patterns (affiliate link), which I’ve made before and adore. The pants are these hand-me-downs that I’m so glad have lasted long enough to hand down (these knees have withstood lots of rough play!)

  1. Oh, how I love this post. First, mustard and grey is one of my all time favorite color combos and that AMH knit fabric is just fabulous. I seriously need to get my hands on some of that. Secondly, how smart are you for thinking to lengthen the Union Street Tee pattern? The dress looks so adorable on you and must be SO very comfy! Lovely job!

  2. This is amazing! Love the color scheme and the styling. I know this is a post about sewing but…his hair!? So so adorable.

I'd love to hear what YOU think
