Project Runway is a mother-daugther thing here and some episode ago, Mariann decided to try sketching a dress. After she was finished, I told her "Let's go shop some fabric!" and we went "shopping" in my stash, which had all the right color for this wonderfull colorblocking dress Cheesy



She built the colorblocking front piece with the serger and I decided a raglan style would better fit her drawing so she serge the sleeves to the front and then the back piece (we decided on blue at mood) I sew the casing for the elastic and put it in, she sew it and voil!!

I really love how it came out! She really did 95% of it and she's so proud!

That's awesome! I love that she was able to make her dress almost by herself. You must be very proud of her.

It is a great dress. And you are a wonderful mum, giving her confidence in her abilities, and teaching how to make her dreams real.

Wow! She did a great job. I like her style. Very colorful, and great that you have a large stash. It touches my heart to see mother daughter stuff. And glad you are including her in art. It is very good for kids at any age. Please tell her how much that I like her project. You both did wonderful!

I just think it is wonderful when children are given the encouragement and taught the skills to be creative and productive in the future!  What a wonderful Mother/child experience you have given her...she is quite talented and I love her colorful style!

I will look out for her in future Project Runway shows, when I can say--"Hey, I saw her when she was just a kid!" Grin
