In this paper, we describe and analyze the design of a teaching and learning activity between mathematics and arts & crafts, centered around the making of a skirt. A group of 8thgrade girls is encouraged to make a skirt that they would actually want to wear and hence become engaged in a process of expressing themselves, making choices of taste, but also taking measures of their own bodies, feelingthe fabric and observing drafts in the mirror before refinement. In this process, they activate mathematics when needed, performing several shifts between different representational registers. In particular, we focus our analysis on their shifts between representations in two and three dimensions.
