PS. I featured this thread on Craftster's Facebook page today. Thanks for sharing.  Smiley

Wow, thanks!  Lots of likes and nice comments there.  I would jump in saying "Hey that's me!" but I'm not real keen on Facebook knowing more about me.  But all the nice comments are very appreciated.

You can instead leave a comment mentioning what an obvious genius IndividualFrog is, and singing his praises. No one will know it's you.  Cool

I also came here from facebook, what a great idea! Great dress as well, so many girls would love to have their uncle make a dress they designed!  Grin

If there is ever a Project Runway family edition, the two of you should definitely enter! You make a great team. She clearly inherited your creativity!

okay, serious best uncle award! kids have the coolest ideas sometimes, but lack the dexterity and organization to create what they imagine, so it's super awesome you two worked together on this. kid-inspired design would make a wicked tv series! a bunch of designers (industrial, fashion, architectural, etc.) + wacky kid ideas? amazing!!

This is so cool!  I love how it started and came together, but on top of that, your niece is a superb little fashion designer!  I may have to borrow that ribbon trim idea if you don't think she'd mind.  It's super creative!

It would be so cool to let her design an article of clothing that you make for her every year. Then, keep all her drawings and the photos of your collaborations. When you have enough, you could publish a book of them all.* It would be so awesome to see how her tastes change, and to watch her grow up modeling the clothes she designed.

*or at least post them here!  Smiley
