Raising Fashionistas...Oh Boy What Am I In For??

Yep... this is what I live with on a day to day basis. Two budding fashionistas. They love to create outfits to wear. As long as they are not leaving the property, they can wear and create whatever their hearts desire.
I got the sewing machine recently fixed (okay so I had to learn how to thread my darn bobbin) and am ready to teach the girls what my Nonnie taught me...the art of creating sewing items for play or wear. I spend many of summers with my Nonnie in the middle of god forsaken nowhere...where there was nothing to do but sew and crochet or read trashy novels but she did not introduce me to those till I was 15...
I spend a good part of my childhood sewing projects with my Nonnie and in Jr. High School and High School altering what I would buy at the "Brick Bon Marche" (aka thrift store) into my own creations.
I am reminded of my mothers comments and cross eyed looks as she would see me in one of the great alter-creations and would comment that I looked like a "street walker" Now mind you I was a rather naive 14 - 16 year old who had no idea what she meant... Now in hindsight...yeah.....she be right....I dressed like a hooker under the disguise that I thought I was a fashionista. Oh good lord.... what will I do...
