Suri Cruise designs her own clothes.

The four-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes chooses her own designs and has done since she was aged just 18 months, her mother claims.

Katie said: "I grew up the youngest of five, so there were a lot of hand-me-downs that I would sort of change up.

"And Suri and I do that now with her clothes. Or rather, she does it. She says, 'I want this sleeve cut,' and it's like, 'Okay, we'll cut it.' She picks out all of her own clothes and has since she was one-and-a-half."

Katie, 31, also claims to have had a hand in making clothes for her, but has to get someone else to sew them as she doesn't have the necessary skills.

She told New York magazine: "I started making clothes for Suri when she was born, designing dresses, and then having seamstresses sew them, because I don't sew very well.

"As a child, I was always drawing clothes, and I've always loved fabrics, and when Suri was born, I wanted to have certain things be from me and created just by me for her."

Previously Tom has revealed Suri - who is regularly seen wearing children's size high heels and prom-style dresses - has freedom to be "creative" with her fashion.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I think it's important for children to be able to put on what they want to put on.

"She's always just... she wears what she wants to wear and we allow her that creativity. She's just very special. An extraordinary little girl."
