I try to keep it mellow on the matchy-matchy family clothes, but sometimes it just can't be helped. For example, when one finishes a shirt for oneself in the yummiest of fabrics that would be just perfect on a baby's skin, and wow, look at that! There's just enough for a shirt for said baby. Yes! Just a little matchy-matchy is a good thing, I do declare.
My shirt is the Short Raglan Sleeve Top from Simple Modern Sewing. I have great hopes for this book, and what I think it might do for my handmade plans. This was my second go at this simple pattern, from the muslin I decided to make this one a little bit less wide, and a little bit longer than the actual pattern. I think it works - the sleeve length is perfect for actually working around the house, it's loose and easy for breastfeeding, and then there's that super comfortable fabric that makes me feel like I'm wearing pajamas (that's a good thing). The fabric is the utterly amazing Nani Iro brushed cotton. Annabel's is a mini version of my own, drafted from the pajama pattern I use for her, with the addition of the double elastic at the neck like my own.
