Updated photos:

Matching twirling dresses for my monkey and her very good friend.  Because I'm insane.  No really, doing some 80 feet of gathering made me want to jump out the window (workshop is in basement, don't worry)

When we see our friend this week I should be able to get some double twirl action shots (can't wait!  Cheesy)

But, for now...

The idea was to try to match the colours in the bodice and sort of make it go darker with every layer.  I didn't get the effect I wanted, but I've got the colours right at least.

(my little yogi.  Seriously, you should see her warrior pose.  No wait, lion is even better  Grin)

I welcome questions and comments.

adorable! I think I'm jealous of your mad patchwork and gathering skills. I definitely don't have the patience to do it on that scale.
