that’s not a quilt!

Girl-sized 7, this dress features vintage yukata fabrics that I imported from Japan. I bought the Asian-inspired pattern, by modkid, at Fabric Crush in Wallingford Center.

The dress is made with four different fabrics—two indigo ones that match perfectly for the body, a third one for the obi, and a fourth for the homemade double-fold bias tape used to bind the edges.

In the coming week, the dress and mannequin are heading for QuiltWorks NW to promote my trunk show in late September.
