Who knew Busy Philipps and Constance Zimmer had such sartorial skills? To help their daughters Birdie Leigh, 4, and Colette Zoe, 5, (who attend the same preschool in Los Angeles) with a school project, the resourceful moms tried their hand at fashion designing — D.I.Y-style.
After Philipps announced she had already started whipping up her creation, Zimmer replied that she was also hard at work surrounded by piles of newspapers, bubble wrap and plastic bags.
And with that, the competition was officially on! “Watch it Zimmer, I’m planning to win. We win something, right? Right?” Philipps joked.

In our book, both designs earned an A. Philipps’s matching skirt and blouse combo featuring Target’s bulls eye print — complete with an oversize bow and chic red and white rosettes — made Birdie the cutest bag lady we’ve ever seen.
It seems we weren’t the only ones in awe of their skills. The actresses’s celeb pals were also impressed.
“[Constance you're] very talented. You acted and make crafts,” Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo quipped of costar Zimmer’s creation.
“That’s amazing,” fellow mom Autumn Reeser Tweeted to Philipps. “Birdie’s preschool is so hip!”
