Children’s wear project, bubble inspiration. I originally was thinking of doing swimwear, but when talking to the child’s mother (she is 8 1/2) her mom brought up how she is getting to that age where she is more body conscious. I took off from there and designed a loose tank to show off her arms and shoulders, and then some short leggings to show off her legs, with pockets to add a more “grown up”, tailored look to them. I made and beaded a bib necklace to embellish the tank, and a plastic vinyl “bubble bag” (that had to be done by hand – my machine didn’t like the monofilament thread!). She will have beaded black flip-flops for the final fashion show.
The bib has sequins, turquoise beads, teal fabric covered beads, and gold and teal seed beads.
teal and black cotton spandex jersey, teal cotton for bib, clear plastic 4-gauge vinyl
