    Oh my gosh, Claire, these are so adorable! You and your mum make a great fashion team. When my mom was alive, I used to dream up some really odd fashions and she would make them for me. I loved wearing what she created from my very own imagination. She was teaching me how to do it myself when she passed away and so I never learned. I can’t wait to see how your style these cute little numbers! Thanks for linking up.
