My youngest niece, Alice, is 12 and a rather creative little chicky. She has a talent for envisioning and executing a project in the shortest time possible. No mucking around, just action. Her latest self directed project was to make her mum an apron from grandma's fabric offcuts. Very shabby-chic meets wabi-sabi. Double layered, un-hemmed, with a drop waist, bum hugging tie. Black felt pen lines are visible, indicating the designers original concept and her desire to move beyond the constraints of pattern making. To her mother's credit, she actually wears it, and pulls off quite the domestic goddess look.
