It is spring here in Australia and my 10 year old daughter Emily and I have been spending too much time watching Project Runway repeats.
She got the project runway kits for a birthday and has been having lots of fun with it.
We went off to spotlight and chose 2 fabrics and bought a couple of metres of each.
Then it was challenge time.  Emily decided to make a summer collection based around the fabrics and here are her results. (I'm not even going to publish mine as she puts me to shame!)

After much debate and discussions and asking Dad for his imput she decided we should make this one:

But then it fell to me to make the pattern!  Yikes!  I tried my best drafting a pattern from some other dresses she already has. 
Then we got to sewing it together, she did the nice straight stuff and I did the annoying curvy facings and what not.
Here it is modelled on the designer herself, looking justifyably proud of herself too!!!

Please feel free to comment, but be gentle as I will be showing Emily your responses.
The first thing she asked was "Mum, can you put it on Craftster?" So here it is!

Emily is very talented!  (And I'm a 37 y.o. old lady!  Wink)  I love the style and choice of colors too!

This is totally awesome! I also love the fact that even in 30 years, Emily is going to remember designing and making clothes with her mother... what fantastic memories!

All four of the designs looked really great.  For 10 years old she seems to have a great eye for fashion.

Kudos to Mom too for creating the dress so well.  Looks like you girls will have a fun summer ahead.

Aww, what a cutie! The dress turned out great. What a fantastic job! I'd love to see the other designs too, if you two get adventurous and decide to make them. What a fantastic little Crafter you have there. Smiley Well done!
