Bluestocking: a woman with strong scholarly interests
Week 4 of PRP and the theme is inspired by a color. I chose BLUE. I chose it because:
I have a lot of blue fabric on hand
Abi loves blue
It is pretty
But then the designing began. I try to be a true artist and let the fabric tell me what it wants to be. But I am incredibly practical, so I also tell the fabric what I need it to be. This is the compromise I came up with for this week.
The kids need shorts, so all my PRP projects have included shorts.
And Abi styles herself as a "sweet rock-star". So I need something feminine but something she can add her own quirkiness to.
Then, as the outfit developed, I wanted it to have a theme/ title of sorts and "bluestocking" is perfect. My Abi is a bit of an academic. She wants to be a scientist when she grows up (astronomer is her preferred career goal right now). So here is her bluestocking outfit.
How's that for a vocabulary word? So we have accomplished all goals:
used fabric on hand
came up with an artistic design with a color theme
