I see a bright future in fashion and art for this young teen who made a dress for her older sister who was looking for something for prom!
Yahoo tells us more about the story!
When Mikayla decided to take her little sister seriously, the two started collaborating on what the dress could look like. And when Courtney created her first sketches of it back in November, both Mikayla and her mom saw Courtney’s potential.
“Courtney first sat with Mikayla and looked at different types of dresses that Mikayla liked. She wanted to get a sense of what style appealed to Mikayla,” Crystal explains. “They went through several rough drafts [of the sketch] before they finalized one.”
From there, Courtney worked with her cousin Syreeta (she has her own line called Syreeta C Fashion), who became her mentor throughout the process. Crystal ensures though that when it came to the making of the dress, it was all Courtney.
“I was only around for motivation, transportation and to purchase supplies needed,” she says.
The motivation fron Syreeta and Crystal, however, was a crucial part of the process. Especially when Courtney was admitted to the hospital in both December and March as a result of having type 1 diabetes. Still, Crystal says that her younger daughter persevered to make sure that the dress was completed, and perfect, by April 26.
What an awesome little sister!!!
