I've given my four year old co-pilot sewer a box of fabrics she can rummage through, cut up, sew, roll in, throw at her brother etc.
This morning she pulled out this pink piece and sewed a few lines up and down it then asked me to help her find a belt. We found a green checked piece, a strip off the side of a quilt which she decided was perfect. She took it away. There were a few whirs coming from her corner of the lounge room where she has her sewing machine set up. She then appeared next to me to help her put it on and take a photo.
So here it is, her first ever dress. Made completely by herself.
Personally I'd call it an apron. Its kind of lacking a back, but a mighty fine first effort don't you think?
