She wanted to be a classic schoolgirl for a schoolplay. And she had a well defined idea about what she wanted to wear. Pleated skirt, white blouse and a necktie. The first two items were in her closet, but the last one asked for some mommy craftiness. Of course I sewed a pretty colour block tie for her, with love. It took me only ten times the time she was on stage (2 min). Haha.
