I've been with DH for 10 years, married 6.  His daughter is 13 and mine is 15.  Since they were little, SD has always been just a tad bit taller but otherwise same sizes (my daughter is still tiny)  Well, for a time we dressed them kind of the same, well at least same color coordination. (you know, like sisters)

But now.....the kids have grown up and when I mean grown up SD outweighs my DD by at least 30-40 lbs. Albeit she also is taller by about 4 inches.

We are having a party in which believe it or not SD WANTS to dress like my DD.  She told her mom to get the name of the seamstress so she can have the EXACT same dress as my daughter.

Well, that just isn't going to happen.  The seamstress is booked and is not taking on any new clients.  I know for a fact that BM is already telling others that I don't want to give her the information, but truth be told the seamstress does not want me to give out her information while she isn't taking new clients.

Secondly, I want my daughter to have the dress she's wanted without it being a "twinsy" thing.

Lastly, the dress is made for a certain shape/type.  I wouldn't even let SD do that to herself.

NOPE, NOT EVEN GONNA HAPPEN BM.


ETA

I listened to what you ladies said and reached back out to the seamstress.  She said I can pass on the number and she would tell her herself.  Which she did.

If the seamstress is booked and not taking on clients, what's the problem with giving out the name?

I don't get it, why dress them the same from the start? That's weird for actual siblings but super weird for step siblings

I contacted her and she would prefer me not to until she IS taking new clients.  Probably doesn't want to have to repeat herself.

Tell her the name.  The seamstress can then tell her she is not taking new orders.

Oh ok, well then I guess everybody is going to need to respect that.

Honestly, I'd still give out the name and have the seamstress tell her it's a no go. And then tell her the twin bit is a thing of the past.

The seamstress has asked that I do not
