Mama & Me Tops

Score! I made this top and I LOVE it! Thank you to iCandy for the tutorial for the Every Day Tee. The tutorial is fabulous and the top so easy to make. Plus it's now going into my regular rotation because it feels so good on.
 Perhaps the material helped a wee bit too. I picked up this super soft, stretchy April Johnson fabric at Joann's over the summer. I didn't realize that Joann's carried "designer" knit fabrics! So I bought some with a 40% off coupon and then an additional 20% off stacked on top of that and I think 2 yards of this ended up being $7. Hurrah for no shipping costs and good fabric.

So, being so happy with my new top, I decided to reduce the pattern and make a top for my daughter too.
And then wear them on the same day. She was actually THRILLED to have the same top as her mom. I'm sure you can tell from the pictures.
 Seriously. Elated. I'm sure you don't believe me. I wouldn't either. Not with this picture of my daughter defying my friend to get any closer with that camera. Right.
Anyway. I -- I -- am thrilled because I loved this tutorial, love my new top, and love being twinners with my daughter. (Never thought I'd say that, but I guess I am one of those moms now. Yay!)
(Yes...matching labels too. I am super corny.)
