Rosie - Reserve Grand Champion
ROSIE:
Rosie won a blue ribbon and RESERVE GRAND CHAMPION in the West End Fair in 2003.  I designed her and wove the fabric for her dress.

ROSIE'S OUTFIT:  SIDE 1:  The loom was threaded as a reverse 8 harness twill with 2/17 maroon colored wool.  The weft is a variegated yarn that I had.  I took a pattern from "A Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns", edited by Carol Strickler, Pattern #93 and changed it around to make it look like a bargello pattern.
ROSIE'S OUTFIT: SIDE 2:   This is the reverse side of Side 1.  In weaving, often the reverse side is different.
