I have a new toy! A size 10 pre-teen size Wolf dress form! I have been building pleated skirts for the middle school play and this arrived just in time. I must say that pleated skirts are not easy to make. I've been winging it a bit (as much as you can wing pleats) but the skirts have to work for a quick change from a school girl into a ninja warrior, but I couldn't resist the challenge. I can't wait to introduce my girls to her at camp this summer. They are going to be super excited to have a dress form that is their size!
Am I really crazy enough to take on another quilt project? Indeed I am! Miyong and I are working on a Shibori resist project with the middle school for their annual auction. Here are a few samples of their work. Miyong from Idyeology is leading the project and handling the bleach. I will work on the block layout and design with the class next week.
