Costumes Help to Realize Fantasies

She decided to make a cape and was very specific about its length and style. I think the fabric she found actually inspired it.

This responsible young man wanted to use the sewing machine, which he’d never done before; he’d been observing others though. I didn’t even have to do it with him this first time. I gave him some verbal directions and a piece of fabric. He stitched and folded finally coming up with this outrageous soft sculpture. Notice his pride and delight.

He learned more about sculpting in this one session than I could ever have taught him.

She made all the decisions, including the fact that she wanted to make a jacket. I only taught her techniques to achieve her goals. Notice her pride and power.
