When I Realized...

While shopping for khaki pants for my teenage daughter for school, I became aggravated beyond belief when I could not find a decent looking pair of khaki pants with a little bit of style to them. Everything was "uniformish". I know kids aren't going to school for a fashion show but WOW..why can't a uniform look stylish while fitting the perameters and guidelines that is set forth? I was a 13 year old girl at one time too and I know that I wanted to fit in and look like I had a little style and fashion sense. In effect, I decided I was going to solve the problem by creating a line of uniform khaki pants for the entire district that would be fashion yet school friendly. How flippin' hard could it be? HAHAHAHAAAA! I had absolutely no idea what I was about to get into or even where to begin so I put the idea on hold until one day my mother in law asked me what I wanted for my birthday. After some thought, I decided I wanted to re-address the whole khaki idea and asked for a sewing machine. I got it! Now what? Computerized too?? I'm not in home-ec anymore! So I started drawing what I envisioned the pants would look like and even summoned my daughter and a friend of hers to draw their own ideas and we all compared sketches. Funny...they were all basically the same! From there I decided I had to start researching and learning all I could to make this idea a reality.
