If a 6-year-old could design her own clothing, what would it look like?


A few weeks ago I mentioned to my sewing students in my youngest group (6-7 year olds) that I was planning to design a special dress for Valentine's Day. My comment was followed by a lot of excited chatter about what this dress should look like, followed by a sudden cry of  "Get us pencils and paper!"

After a flurry of drawing they presented me with their designs. Each designer described her vision and I applauded their efforts. Here's what they came up with:

Stay tuned to see the final design. Thanks for the inspiration!
