I grew an artist in my womb and now that she is out in the world, I still try to foster her creativity and help her thrive. She loves to draw and was recently inspired by Project Runway Allstars to start designing her own clothing. Here is a recent design that she drew, something she wanted very much to have me sew for her.
Those are raspberries on the dress. We spent a long time looking for fabric to match that, went to all three quilt shops in town, Joann Fabrics, looked on Etsy. Finally, I found Moda Redwork Renaissance Cherries Porcelain at Sisters and Quilters on Etsy. We were thrilled! Even though she envisioned raspberries, this cherry print fit the bill. Then, I remembed I had a copy of Portabellopixie Gracie pattern and I knew how to make her vision a reality!
So, here it is! Voila! One tween vision come true. She just turned nine and doesn't like little girl clothing anymore, so I am very happy to find something I could make for her that makes her happy.
