Let me introduce you to my current project: It is a beauty inspired costume. We went to the shop and Anjali chose the fabric. Then, I looked for a tutorial, found one, and started on it. Once I added the first layer of chiffon, at the bottom of the dress, Anjali takes one look and says, "I want the chiffon all the way to the top". So on go two more layers.
It gets very boring to make the same thing twice, so I asked Sophia, very nicely, if I could make a cinderella dress for her instead. I found a no sew tulle one on a blog a couple of days ago and I really wanted to make it.
"Mom, you can make me anything you want", said Sophia magnanimously.
My heart jumped.
"But it has to be like beauty", she added
Well, one could always hope. So this is also on the sewing table.
