Rosie - Reserve Grand Champion
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.
