NOTE: In case you're wondering about the above dressform - no, it's not designed for very shapely little girls. It's actually a quarter model of an adult woman form (size 14-16 to be exact). My granddaughter is only 6 years old and she's really small for her age. I'm only using this form as a prop to hold up this skirt. I just felt the need to explain this picture because it was sort of freaking me out a little bit with the hips and all.
I also want to show you a picture of my first attempt at faux chenille. It was time-consuming and required lots of yardage but I like it. I think it will "fluff up" more with each washing. I used a Simplicity pattern, but I don't remember the number and I can't find the envelope right now. I think I will try this technique again, but I will make sure I use only rayon fabric because it will fray better.
