Not one to be left out, my darling Juliana had her own spot in our weekend-long sewing spree. As I had mentioned here, she combs mags in search of inspiration. Though I may just be a very proud mommy, I dare say she has quite an eye for trend. She is really my main consultant on coolness factor these days. The endearing thing about her fashion sense is that she is smart enough even at 14 to translate inspiration into something appropriate for her and does not seem to dress for attention or conforming like so many girls her age. She just plain loves the process of making something herself or composing whats out there...where does she get that? Hmm.
Speaking of not looking for attention, she really sunk into the gray background we are experiencing outside in Tennessee today. We discussed the how the look of this dress is so old and so new. It's so farm and so city. If she'd carried a bucket with it it would look like she's on her way to the cows. But carrying this tote that she made all by herself (good girl) she looks like she's on her way to anywhere.
And she shares my appreciation of these prints. We both noticed how the orange flowers on gray pop like our fall trees against the sky. We both loved it. I offerred just a few hints here and there on the construction and she was quickly cutting, stitching, clipping, pinning and pressing with no pattern like her mommy.
Outside of her borrowing my favorite boots the look is totally her. Homemade. Comfortable. Sweet.
Hope your day is bright or at least a welcome gray where you are!!
