This is a little project (and by little I mean huge and awesome) I am working on. There is an amazing crew of folks working on it. We are currently playing with scale models in order to troubleshoot before we are working with a 18 foot whatnot. It is cool. We submitted a proposal... I really really hope the folks at the burning man org decides we are worthy of funding. The crew is so cool... peeps who really follow through and are wicked fun to work with.

This second effort was shortened by 5 inches, but still turned out too big because I deviated from the recommended fabric type.
I had intended to wear this in layers so I rolled the dice and used a very stretchy light rayon jersey... it was too light and this garment ended up bigger (mostly) longer than I would have liked. I am still pretty happy with it though.
The pattern was a good one, easy to make. The green top took me one movie so about two hours start to finish. I will be making this top again for sure.
