:) gleeful mommy.
She wandered into the sewing room today and asked "What's that on Beth?"
!!! interest in sewing stuff!!!
"Just a jacket."- you've seen the jacket- totally boring to an 11-year old. She's walking away.
"But I was just thinking I'm going to make a dress for the Karate Awards Dinner". (yes, I said it in bold.)
I get an eyebrow raise.
"Check out this fabric".
I whip out a creamy crepe-backed satin in her absolute fav shade of turquoise. The eyes light up... almost got her...
I show her my dress pattern. S2724.
"Oh, nice." Uh oh. Losing her.
"Not your style?" Head shake as she's turning to go.
"Well, what kind of dress would you make if you could?"
She stops. Silence. I'm hoping at this moment all those episodes of Project Runway are rushing back to her... She turns back around...
"Well," she begins, "I'd want straps like this (she motions spaghetti straps) and the top to go across like this..." and so it goes. She described a dress, I whipped out my patterns and... Voila! We are making a dress! :)

I'm hoping I'll have enough satin so we can have matching fabric!
;) I am such a dork.
