Chantelle, my daughter of 11 is starting to show serious interest in Dressmaking. Since she had a fabric based project at school a few weeks ago and I supervised her making a funky jersey top ( from Burda 5/2009), she's been begging me to do something else. So today I gave her a chance to make a Christmas Stocking. I didn't want to interfere, so it is not the most perfect stocking the world ever seen. But the main thing - she did it all by herself, following the instructions from this video and I am sure with a bit of practice, she will get into it just like I did. One thing I am so proud of- the family tradition seems to be passed to Chantelle (every woman in my family makes clothes). Great! I should now grant myself with a nice glass of wine to celebrate!
