Are You a Fashionista?

Last Friday, we invited local fashion designer, Jennifer Butler, to the Children’s Room for a tween fashion workshop! The tweens brought their own dolls and created a one-of-a-kind outfit. Throughout the workshop, we learned a little bit about the history of fashion, techniques to create a pattern for skirts, and how the world around us can inspire us to make amazing things! Take a look at the outcome… Way to go, FPL fashion designers!
