WATCH: Mini seamstress plans for her Calliope Catwalk debut

INDIE-LEE Ibbotson is a six-year-old sewing pro.

The Clinton State School year one student loves making her own clothes, although she does get a little bit of help from her mum.

She can't keep away from her hot pink sewing machine she got for her birthday last year.

"I've made skirts, pyjamas and shorts with mum," she said.

"I also made my own rainbow bikini."

Indie-Lee wants to put her sewing skills to the test, and so she's decided to enter her first Calliope Catwalk Fashion Design Awards this year.

She is competing in the primary student white t-shirt redesign category.

"I'm going to put different material onto it and make it into a dress maybe with suspenders," she said.

"It will be special and I'm going to make it in the school holidays."

Indie-Lee will also model her outfit at the event, which is held at the Calliope State School hall on August 1.

Entries close on July 3 and garments are required at the school by July 17.

Public tickets are $55 and are available at Fantasy Rags or Limestone Clothing.
