1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Advice about stretchy fabric on: May 20, 2015 05:26:46 PM
Help! I do aerial silks and trapeze, and I recently got super excited about making my own leotard. So I went to the fabric store, found an awesome-looking fabric, stretched it, played with it, bought it. Now that I have it home, I realized I must not have been grabbing the fabric "correctly," because it's stretchy in one direction but not the other. Like at all. I must have been grabbing slightly "off axis." I'm pretty sure that is not going to work for a leo. I'm not 100% sure it won't, but I'd hate to go through all the work to find out that it in fact won't. Sooo...what should I do? Can I sew it on the bias? Or will that end up in disaster? Or just try it anyway and know that I might not have the flexibility I need? Although that might end up in torn seams.

Okay, I know the whole 20s/Gatsby thing is getting overdone lately...but I actually dance solo and partnered Charleston, so it's practically required for me to do at least once!  Wink

I am SO proud of how it turned out. A discontinued Simplicity pattern purchased on eBay, about a yard of black swimsuit lining, 13 yards of pitch-black fringe, black tulle, and a few notions later:



I made the dress and gauntlets and put some fringe on elastic for the headband (but just happened to have the lace clip).

I NEVER desire to work with this much fringe again, by the way! Ha. At least not until I have more hours in the day. But I have had several requests to make these for people. Smiley Love how this looks in a sepia filter:



I am NOT a hair person, and I have hair almost to my butt, so I am super proud of how my pin curls turned out:



What makes it only almost-authentic? The 20s gave us what would later become the smoky eye, but I'm not sure they used as much black eye shadow as I actually did. The shoes are a 30s style. And I really don't think they wore chokers. I had make the perfect pearl necklace, but it broke. Sad

Anyway, I wore this to a dance and taught some friends several Charleston moves. We went out there as two flappers, one 20s gangster, and one Taylor Swift, and "Charlestoned" it up! SO fun.
