Meanwhile my dress is finished but I'm not too pleased with it. The fabric is just so cheap that it just wrinkles across the body.

Remember the tie dress?
School holidays have arrived and Maya was quick to start her sewing. First up was the mini skirt made from recycled ties. This morning we scoured the local op shops and came home with a bounty of great silk ties, a navy glomesh shoulder bag, a black jumper, a beautiful marquisite brooch and fabulous earrings all for $25. Maya decided that she wanted a skirt rather than a dress. Three hours later it is shaping up well. Unfortunately we have to wait till Tuesday when the Easter extra long weekend finishes to buy an invisible zip for the final seam. I'm so proud of her interest in making and remaking things. Next she plans to make BWOF 09/2008 111 in bright blue t-shirting. It looks like a top in the drawing but is actually a dress. I like her quirky styling.
