We, meaning I, love fantasy books, especially YA fiction. So a few years ago, every time I saw the Wildwood book at a local grocery store of all places. It has the most beautiful cover, which intrigued me. So I picked it up and read the description and was hooked. Tell me this wouldn’t have you…
“Prue McKeel’s life is ordinary. At least until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one’s ever gone in—or at least returned to tell of it.”
I decided to try freezer paper stenciling, which wasn’t bad for my first time, BUT it messed up on my very last bird. I wanted to make a dress that still felt like something Prue would wear so I made a woven dress with navy and white horizontal stripes for the bodice, and then made a circle skirt with vertical stripes. I was debating where to place the stencil and decided on the lower skirt since the crows were flying away and it seemed more authentic. After seeing the placement, I should have gone bodice. Live and learn, but I still like what I made. I also cut my self drafted pattern to tight so I had to add an entire panel down the back side to install the zipper. We all make mistakes, and I make LOTS of them since 5 kids can be rather distracting.
Overall, we have a team TIE? It’s not a loss, right? I mean, it fits her beautiful and she loves it. Heck, maybe it is a close Win. Either way, I finished so I am putting that on team accomplished.

Thanks for stopping by to see my final look, and only true book inspired one.
