We got some serious cuteness in the mail

Got this adorable Sunshine Cardigan because the front is trimmed in the same fabric as the ruffles, which we already had. It's 12M and HUGE

LOVE this top but it's an 18m and for the fall/winter, so it's really big, the black velour ruffles are part of a set that we already had.

This Maya dress is BEAUTIFUL, and the Stew ruffles go with the dress below as well. Dress is 18m and is for fall, the ruffles are 12m and are huge. LOL Wish I could have gotten decent pics of this, but she became obsessed with the doorstop.

Got the dress from my favorite GF seller. It's 12m and runs like an 18m, guess she'll be wearing this next spring. Wink The ruffles are the same as the pics above. I pulled up her dress and got a good pic of them, they are TDF. Wish I had picked up a top to go with them. Maybe I'll go hunt one down, because they don't deserve to be covered with a dress.

Another knot dress that I scored from the same GF seller. Snagged the ruffles from the platinum sale, they are a PERFECT match. She was pretty much done trying clothes on at this point so she kept turning her back to me. I have a million pics of her back and only these few so-so ones of her face.:(

BEAUTIFUL clothes and an even more beautiful model! I especially like the colors in the last outfit. So jealous. Gwendolyn destroys all her clothes so I would never be able to buy her cute outfits like that. All her clothes come from Target and Sears.

Ah, you do have such wonderful taste in clothing! Wondering what your own wardrobe looks like! Smile

So pretty. What does she weigh now? Does most stuff fit her well as far as sizing for age? (Fiona got some stuff for her birthday 6m, lol!)

I love the flowy feel of those patchwork dresses. I have so many skirts like that myself.

Oh my word, that stuff is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY cuter than the stock photos show!! Just absolutely KICKING myself for not getting more. :doh:

She is A.DOR.ABLE. That cardigan is cute, and yes, those stew ruffles are awesome!

Love all of it, Mel. Good job!

well Abs would look stinking adorable in a potato sack first of all, but manohman those outfits are beautiful and adorable. I'm glad I didn't have a girl or I'd seriously be in the poor house, seriously, I can't control myself lol.

You have amazing taste. If DH's vasectomy fails and I ever have a girl, I'm going to send you my visa and have you go at it LOL

Awe thanks guys. If you could see this stuff IRL, you'd die. Candace can attest that the pics do not do this stuff justice.

The 2 knot dresses I got off GF. The rest of it was off the Matilda Jane Platinum site, they had a very unpredictable 40% spring cleaning sale.

Jord, this stuff runs HUGE. She is 21 pushing 22 lbs and is 28-30 inches, pretty much hitting the 60-ish percentiles. she is pretty solidly wearing a 12-18m in Janie&Jack and Gymbo. The apron knots run smaller--the bottom pic is an apron knot that is 12m and there is still plenty of room for her grow into them. The smallest size MJ makes is 12m. Their 18m runs more like a 2T. The stuff is designed to be worn over a long period of time, it's not supposed to fit 'just right'. KWIM? The dresses are pretty much designed to look ok as either a dress or a long top with pants. The ruffles (pants) run SUPER long and are designed to look good as both pants and capris. She does everything in a size range. A 2 fits upto a size 4, a 4 to a 6 etc. This throws a lot of people off, especially if they have a girl who is in a 3 moving into a 4. You'd really want to get a 2 even though that sounds so wrong.

I think that's great though, especially for the people who pay full price! You get a lot of wear out of it, and I think wearing it as a shirt when she's older would be sooooooooo cute!!!

Gorgeous outfits!!! You have great taste! Biggrin
That's one thing I miss about having a little teensy girl (my little girl is almost 11 and won't let me pick out anything for her anymore) - dressing her in such cute clothes!

The pants look great with just a tank or any other style of top, they aren't made to just go under dresses, also the dresses look fabulous alone or layered with a top and pants. She designs each line that nothing matches but it all coordinates so you can pretty much combine any items within a line and it all works. She's also known to grab a fabric from a past line and work little bits of it into a new line so that past pieces will also be able to be used with new ones.
Yeah, I died when I finally located your post about Jax's check up and stats. I swa he was just a lb under Abs. LOL No wonder you were returning stuff. Sorry.

Sorry, I get carried away sometimes. And, I hate when people say oddball things like it's everyday language and you should know what they mean.
Ruffles are what Matilda Jane Clothing calls the pants with the ruffle at the bottom, and straighties are what they call pants with no ruffle, and get this one, shorts are called shorties. LOL
