51  securing capelet to ballet costume? in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by dulcet on: May 15, 2012 10:01:50 AM
So I'm doing costumes for my daughters' ballet studio.  They're doing Little Red Riding Hood.  I've made the costume for Red, and the satiny capelet.  But that thing slides around like crazy when she dances!  I need to somehow secure it, but it has to be removable.  She isn't wearing it at the beginning of the first scene.  Then the mother puts it on her, and she immediately exits the stage.  This is when something could be fiddled with to secure it, before she goes on in the next scene.

Sorry, the capelet is at the studio so they can practice with it.  So no picture, but it's pretty basic.  Ties at the front neck.  We'll stick bobby pins in to secure the hood, but I need to think of something for the shoulders.

The strap is underneath the peasant top.  I'm sure there's a simple solution, but my brain is a little fried from working on ballet costumes about 20 hours a week for the past three months!  It's a good thing it gets me a hefty discount on the girls' tuition, or the stress would outweigh the fun.  Thanks for any and all suggestions!

I feel so bad because my package came from redpopsicles, but I've been out of town.  It was fun to open because I got a fabulous headscarf, and as I unrolled it, everything else was wrapped up in it!  I got the luscious, silky headscarf, a tree-of-life hairpin, a tiger's eye hairpin, and a wire-spirals clip.  Thanks redpopsicles--I can't imagine the time you put into these.

Lovely timing--Hobby Lobby has blank hair accessories for 50% off right now.

I don't remember who suggested that we all post pictures of our hair, but here's mine.

Cue "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon.

54  artificial fading? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by dulcet on: December 03, 2010 12:49:53 PM
I bought this abfab 80's dress at a garage sale.  It's all velvety on top, with a satin mermaid skirt including netting underneath for volume.  I want to cut off the poufy skirt to use by itself.  But this stripey fading is only on the front.

The back is the original deep purple without the pink fading.  I think it's probably from sun exposure.  I don't mind the fading, but it looks funny just in front.  So anyone know how I could artificially fade the rayon/acetate satin?

55  sunburst in greens and turquoises in Quilting: Completed Projects by dulcet on: September 27, 2010 11:02:01 AM
So I finally finished the quilt that I started for my brother's wedding...two years ago.  But they loved it, so all's well that ends well.  I got the pattern from "Royal Stars of the States" by Eula Long.  This woman drafted a star pattern for each of the 50 United States.  This is Virginia.  

Most of the fabrics are from my Grandma's stash that I inherited.  

If you can't tell, their favorite colors are green and turquoise.  The fabric for the background and backing are the same as the center medallion.

I've also made Ohio (my profile pic) and Utah, each for a sibling's wedding, each over a year late.  Maybe I'll start another now, even though the two left don't have prospects, yet. =)

(My apologies for the tiny pictures.  Any suggestions on making them show larger?)

I've come up with another way to store my headbands, and thought I'd share.  Just a heavy, narrow vase.  I've got nine in it here, and could fit a couple more.

I received from rosyposie yesterday.  It's a flower from some cute fabric.

Thanks!  I hope you get mine soon, I don't know what's taking it so long.

Woohoo!  I received my headband from edenkitty!  It's got cute, red, vintage buttons wired onto it.  With that flower one, it'll go nicely with my new skirt that's a red Hawaiian print.

Sorry my pictures are always so small.  Don't know how to adjust that.

It is just too fun getting packages in the mail!  I received from mymymissmai today.

My daughter gasped when she saw it.  I think she'll probably be wearing it tomarrow.

Now I  have a question.

Does anyone have any ideas for some kind of holder for storing the headbands?  I don't have a drawer to throw them in, and I probably wouldn't even if I did. (My husband says that I should get a model head from the movie Alien, but I just don't have the space for it.)

I actually received my package from nmcakemom07 on Thursday, but had told myself that I couldn't open any packages until I made and sent out all my headbands.  Torture, but good motivation.  I made it to the post office on Sat.  And then imagine my surprise when I opened up my package and found four cute headbands!

Here's a closer view of the purple one.

It's funny that nmcakemom07 sent me four, because when I came up with what I thought was the perfect idea to make for her, it was so simple that it felt like cheating.  So I made a second one and threw it in for good measure!  Total karma!  Thanks nmcakemom07!
