St. Patrick's Day Outfits

I'm so excited, I finished my girls' St. Patrick Day outfits, 2 weeks ahead.  Well, most of it is done.  I have to still make them their shamrock hair clips.  But their outfits are done!!

You see, I'm filipino, but my husband's side of the family is very Irish.  His parents are from there and are still citizens there even though they've lived in the US for all my husband's life and then some.  My mother-in-law is famous for her "Mrs. Doubtfire" accent.  So St. Patrick's Day is a big day for us.  And last year I decided to make my kids cute one-of-a-kind outfits.  The girls had appliqued shamrocks on short-sleeve white shirts with twirly skirts using the fabric I used for the appliques.  They also had headbands made from the same fabric.  My son was spared from matching entirely with the girls but I appliqued the same style shamrock, to a smaller scale size on a white polo for him.  So this year I was expected to have another outfit.  And I did it!

I appliqued Irish dancer images onto long sleeved shirts (it's been colder this year!)
Clare chose the forward facing design while Theresa and Kathleen wanted the side kicking one.

I made a matching belt and added ruffles to their pants to match with the applique

The result
This is Clare, who unlike Theresa, loves to have her picture taken!  I do need to make those hairclips though - her hair is everywhere!Pin It

Oh my goodness...the outfits are so cute! I'm sure you'll get a ton of compliments on them. They're not too holiday looking, and very stylish. What a mom! :)

If you need help linking back to the party, let me know.
