It took few weekends to finish this weaving, and more to come up with a design for this dress. But it's finally here!

Weaving my first dress, from warping to finalizing was exciting project and attempt. Design was made on the go, as usual, during weaving and it changed from the first idea to final weft. Only steady was measuring the length of the dress and counting yarns. Some warp threads broke at the edge and I was forced to redesign dress. From plain strait I was forced to widen it with an insert aside with matching fabric so that I can fit dress to my proportions.

|Threads/yarns used for the dress (orange is missing - all used up) and my own hand made shutles made from Dolar store sticks|
|My idea of letting some wefts unwoven realised well at the end - opening large enough for head|
Bag: I had some leftover woven material, done earlier that I wanted to use for small purse. Having so much trouble with my sewing machines (I guess they couldn't take anymore my heavy leather/fur woven fabric), I was finally happy with a result.
