Reminiscent of the DIY moment in the silver screen classic The Sound of Music, aspiring designer Alexis Brown has fashioned bed sheets (as opposed to drapes) into matching outfits for her and her 9-month-old daughter, Khloe.
The super stylish duo are seen wearing the floral bedding fashions in a now-viral post that has us wishing our textile skills were this good.
Brown, 19, told Cosmopolitan she found the bed sheets while cleaning out a closet at home. “I realized how cute [the sheets] were, and I noticed that Khloe obviously though the same [feeling] by the excitement on her face, so I thought, “Why not make us matching outfits out of them?'” she said. “It was a simple yet super cute design.”
The young mom explained that she only began designing clothes a few months ago. “I had never sewn before, but to me it came as common sense — next thing I know, I was making all types of things,” she said. “I would post little projects here and there on social media, and my followers would tell me to start selling clothes because they’d love to buy them.”
As she recently lost her job, Brown’s fashion pursuits stemmed from making something good out of a tough situation. “I didn’t get upset, because I knew that that was God answering my prayers,” she said. “So that same week [I was fired], I went and got everything registered and opened up my business, Lex A’llure.”
Because she got such positive feedback for her first mother-daughter design, Brown plans to create a “Mommy & Me” clothing line so that we all might share her shine. “Khloe in her dress definitely was my favorite part about the whole thing,” Brown said.
