The Family that Dresses Together…..
I’m finding it really hard to get “family” outfits for the whole lot of us.
The family above isn’t mine, I snagged it from Google Images, but a girl can dream, right?
Clothing companies are too concerned about the individual outfits and are missing an entire market. When is the last time you’ve been able to find an entire outfit that matches your five year olds? There aren’t any out there. Hard to imagine, right?
And what preteen boy doesn’t want to wear a nice corduroy romper just like his mom, dad and little brothers? And sometimes his MawMaw? Maybe one with a nice applique that really proclaims the holiday or the season. I don’t know about you, but it’s something I don’t want my kids to miss out on.
My husband and I have spent long evenings lamenting this perplexing dilemma. How could they experience a proper childhood without family ensembles? The closer the match, the better.
And just imagine the photographs. I daydream of the possibilities.
One night, just before my birthday, Wayne took me out to dinner, and surprised me by solving this problem forever.
Yep. You’re seeing it right.
A sewing machine that also monograms!
And lots of thread so that I can personalize everything we wear.
I’ll begin as soon as I finish my sewing classes that start this week!
So durn you, Ann Taylor! Your refusal to make clothes that fit my husband and children will bother me no more.
Yippee. We can all be happy now! My kids childhoods are still in tact!
I’m all about them having experiences, and this can only add a feeling of unity to our adventures.
I’ve already got five matching leprechaun outfits twirling around in my head for March. I think I’ll surprise the boys with them! March 17th falls on a Thursday this year, maybe their dad and I could wear ours and volunteer at their school! They’re going to be the happiest boys! It’ll be like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
Let me know, because I’m sure by Easter, I’ll be able to churn out some matching Easterwear for you and your loved ones. Get your orders in early!
I think a career is born!
Filling a niche, making the dreams of others come true.
That’s what I’m all about.
My life has purpose.
May your seams be strong and straight,
P.S. I think I need to clear something up, the wall behind that machine is not properly exposed, I would never paint anything in a color that muted! lol
