Additional Information


Claire is inspired by the process, passion, creativity and talent of all the designers on Project Runway. This 13-year-old respects confident people who find joy in what they do. That is how she describes her life view and future in the world of design. Claire’s favorite designer is Zac Posen.

Claire’s first design is a blend of alien and Egyptian inspiration. The sparkle, shine and flowing details give this dress fantastic runway appeal.

Tips & techniques when working with sequins:

  • Use a dedicated pair of sharp scissors. Sequins can dull scissors quickly.
  • Select a simple pattern design, without darts and with few  pieces. The focus of the garment will be on the fabric, not complicated design lines. 
  • Choose a different fabric for sleeves, such as chiffon or organza – sequin sleeves may catch on the body of the garment. 
  • To cut out the garment, turn the fabric facedown with wrong side facing up. Insert pins between the sequins as you pin the pattern pieces to the fabric. 
  • Adjust  stitch length on the sewing machine to 10 stitches per inch. The longer stitch length provides stronger seams. Sew the fabric with a straight stitch. 
  • Finger press open seams on the fabric. To prevent fabric damage; don’t iron.
