S went to school last week and was the talk of the school for a day. Why? Because I told her teacher about her new dress.
Usually I do not brag about my work (except perhaps to friends, neighbors, sewing circle pals, etc ;) This day, however, I made an exception because I was really bragging about S. She has been bugging me forever or at least since we bought this fabric to make her a dress. I did make both girls tunics using this fabric and pink t-shirts, but S has grown out of hers so she was really wanting another. I told her to draw out the dress she wanted and the dress above was what she drew. I was really impressed since I had been wanting to make something like this ever since I saw a similar dress made out of knit.
When we went to school and the teacher told her how beautiful her dress was, I made sure to tell her that S had designed it. At the end of the day, when I picked S up the kids were on the playground. While I waited for her to finish up playing, I heard at least two groups of adults talking about S's dress and how she had designed it. I was so proud!!
I just hope her next design is as easy to make ;)
