I first saw Cecilia Cassini on the Today show a while ago and while she was mildly irritating, seemed harmless enough. I thought it was sort of cute that she was making dresses for other girls her age. I started sewing at a young age too, so we're kind of kindred spirits, right?
Her schtick is that she's the youngest fashion designer...ever. This video is all the evidence one needs to prove she took it too far. I guess she's just a symptom of the 'everybody wins a trophy' generation. An inflamed, phlegmy, mucusy symptom.
Don't say I didn't warn you:
I wouldn't be offended (as much) if she were asking reasonable prices. Her pieces seem to range from $80-$143. LOOK AT THIS HEM!

Sure, a ten year old made this dress, but it looks more like a five year old did. Sorry, but I could go dig up a neater hem from when I was eight. Like, seriously.
