How to describe what I’ve been doing. I’m working on a woven dress.

I started out with a set of threads laid across the shoulder of a dressform, and wove them several rows.

I then removed the sticks, and wove towards the back of the dress form.

Now I started on the other shoulder, doing exactly the same thing on the right side of the dress form.

Now it’s time to add lots more threads at the back.
