Project Runway

I have been giving the girls bags of scrap fabric which they enjoy tying, sewing, piecing, and draping. This Christmas, I gave Em a sewing basket full of implements, fabrics, and a book. She has been creating some interesting things from all of it. This was an attempt at designing for a runway model, using materials at hand. Even if she never makes it as a fashion designer, Em will probably have fun sewing for herself and others.
They played together quite happily all afternoon while creating this ensemble. Em even put the seams on the inside of the garments.


  1. I am really surprised and pleased too that they were able to come up with some things using th ematerials you gave them. What a great idea.

  2. That's an awfully short skirt!!

  3. Go Em! You are very creative!
