purple dress

My ten year old made a dress over the weekend, with a little technical knowledge thrown in from my side.  But the design and sewing were all hers.  She is great on the sewing machine, and when I did sew a bit up for her, she made me unpick it so that she could do it herself.  Ha ha that will teach me to interfere!
We had a photo session in the garden amid the drift-wood arbor (as I like to call it).  

She found a big fat red ribbon in my ribbons stash, and decided it was just the perfect thing to finish it off.

She's very obviously her mother's daughter (and entirely her own person). She looks great - the dress with the sash is brilliant.

Thank you so much, it is very sweet of you to say so. She is very pleased with herself, and it does make me happy that she enjoys to do this sewing stuff too. As for being her own person, you certainly got that right!
