Q: How do you feel about handmade clothes?
A: I like them…. accept I don’t like them to look too crafty.
Q: How do you want them to look?
A: Like they aren’t handmade.
Q: How do you feel about telling your friends your mom makes your clothes?
A: Fine. I don’t care. I brag about it.
Q: What colors do you like?
A :I like the colors mint, baby pink, and white. And blue. I also like colored denim shorts
Q: How about patterns on clothing?
A: No Peace signs, no hearts, and no things that say love! I like small patterns with little animals or florals. Most kids will probably think I’m stupid because everyone at my last school liked that stuff. I like things with turtles and Galaxy prints and I HATE Poo Poo pants ( harem pants) That’s what Zac Posen calls them.
Q: Speaking of Zac Posen, how do you feel about fashion in general and Project Runway?
A: I like everything about it. I like the drama and to see how people make things. And I like Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum.
Q: I used to make you a lot of vintage fashions with 40’s patterns. Would you wear those dresses now if I made you one?
A: If you made it like a modern vintage in a like a blue chambray or something I would wear it. Chambray would be nice.
A: Would you wear something with ruffles on it?
Q: If it was a shorter skirt. No ruffly sleeves. That’s a big no no in my book.
So we decided to go through some of the pattern companies out there to let Lily choose some that she might consider wearing. She didn’t like much. But she did find a few things on the Burdastyle website.
