My oldest daughter loves clothes and is always thinking about what to wear. She has her own little sewing machine and had made a little bag with it. But lately she wanted to go further than that, and she wanted to make a dress.
I convinced her to start with a little skirt instead and that was also okay.
Yesterday was the day that we had planned to make her skirt. I cut a simple skirt for her and we decorated it with some nice ribbons and a little pocket. She was allowed to use my sewing machine and it went quite well if, I may say so. (I was of course helping all the time and I showed her were to sew and how to do it, but she did a lot her selves as well). 6 years old is she, and she made her first skirt! I am really proud of her!
It's also a hobby of hers to show of her clothes like a little model. She has become a little fashion addict I’m afraid of. Just take a look of her here :-).
But I have another little girl which loves skirts as well, but she was convinced that sewing was nothing for her, but a new skirt like her sister she wanted as well. So I had to go a little further with the sewing machine and made a second one with another color of ribbon instead for her.
