Making BetXi’s dress
We matched the fabric to theAlpha Xi Delta’s colors.
There is no fabric that is durable enough and has polka dots big enough for a socially active mascot like BetXi.
The artisans at AvantGarb cut out polka dots and stitched them onto blue fabric. We added light blue trim to the bottom of the dress and made that giant bow!
BetXi’s first appearance was at the Autism Speaks Walk in Indianapolis. BetXi travels from campus to campus promoting Alpha Xi Delta and their good works.
