Season's greetings with matching outfits

Merry Christmas, my lovely readers! I hope you have an amazing festive break wherever you are. We came back from a short break in Portugal last week, where these pictures were taken. 

It's been a while, but I'm back to share some more mummy and daughter twinning outfits with you ;) 

Remember the Cheyenne tunic that made me feel like a cool, chic artist? I was lucky enough to have some of this amazing chambray leftover, so naturally I had to make something matching for Freya. 
I was kindly given this super cute vintage pattern during the Pattern Swap 2019, which was perfect for what I had in mind. It's loose fitting, comfortable, flexible, and not to mention so, so adorable. 
The pattern is from the 80s, and includes a pair of dungarees as well as a blouse with different sleeve lengths. It only comes in one size though, so I had to crack on and make those dungarees before Freya outgrows it.  
I particularly love the front patch pocket and the princess seams for the legs. The crossover back straps are great, too, though I've altered the front such that it is knotted rather than buttons, as a nice grow-with-me option. I also added elastic to the leg hems, for the same purpose. 

A well drafted pattern without too many pattern pieces, together with good instructions, made it a pretty easy and satisfying sew. I really love twinning with my little girl, and hope that it will be many years before she resists my twinning attempts. 
Let me stop here and wish you all an early Happy New Year! May 2020 bring you lots of joy, happiness, and wonderful health! See you in the New Year.
