One of their parties was "ABC=Anything But Clothes" meaning you had to make something to wear with foil, duct tape, food, etc. Sam used a trash bag and tissue paper flowers; some dresses featured Pop Ice or Fruit Roll-ups; and Meggar used rubberized shelf liner for a trio of colorful, wrap-dresses! She designed them using needle-and-thread, safety pins, and self-tie strap. Cool! Everyone thought Meggar was the handy-homeschooler-who-knows-how-to-sew! I don't think a gathered bodice is equivalent to sewing but our crafty home ec projects did give her some ideas.
