Three of a kind

Mom found a darling pattern for the girls during a visit to the Cotton Ball in Morro Bay. We went to Strawberry patches to pick out fabric and found a perfect Riley Blake fabric that would be cute for the 4th of July. I volunteered to make the shirts (mom has a longer to-do list than me!) and then realized the shirts have a pintucked sleeve and serged edges - of which neither of us had equipment for. Long story short, this project motivated mom to buy a serger and pintuck foot. It reminded me of "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" kind of thing (or maybe I just have been reading that book alot lately).
The pattern is the "Olivia Top" by Pink Fig. I liked that the pattern went from infant to big girl sizes. By the way, you don't have to have a serged edge, but its a but more bulky without.
I just love this line up. Each girl is 2 1/2 years apart from the next.
The pintucks in the sleeves add a cute little detail.

Don't they look darling? They were all dressed up to go to dinner on the wharf in Santa Barbara. Well worth the effort!
