My 9 year old daughter has a 1960s day coming up at primary school next week and she wanted something special to wear. We had great fun designing and making a mondrian dress. I had to use a bit of artistic license adapting her design but we had loads of fun and made loads of mess making it and she looks amazing in it.

Mondrian is one of my favorite artists and I love your daughter’s design sketch!
