You did such a good job and this is such a cute idea. As a costume, coordinator/designer, I just may have to incorporate this idea somehow next year. Thanks for sharing!

Ever done something that you thought was super difficult and then succeeded far beyond your wildest expectations? That's how I felt after I completed these costumes.

I am woman with many hats! I am a dance teacher, choreographer, costume designer/coordinator (and much, much more). It started with my own classes that I teach when I could never find what I envisioned and so I started making the costumes for just the classes I taught. It has exploded into complete control of all the costumes for the entire studio.

These flapper costumes are some that I am very proud of . The song was "Thoroughly Modern Millie". I ended up with an award for these costumes.

Although no two are alike, I tried to keep the palette cohesive. In the photo, you can't tell that the dress with white fringe actually has a base dress of bright Arabian blue. I'll try to get more pictures later and possibly a little closer up.

It's funny how this color palette came about. Originally I only wanted the dark, brighter blue with black, but for some reason, the seller of the fringe raised that price by double and I couldn't get enough. I tried matching it (that was a disaster) and ended up with complimentary colors instead. I ran out of fabric for one dress and grabbed a piece of black velveteen that I had. by carefully piecing it together, I came up with a two-tone dress.

I didn't have a pattern so I was flying blind and making it up as I went. I added the black fringe to the bottom and then one row of the blue at the top.

Then I finished the whole "skirt" with black fringe and silver hologram sequins.

Is the little mesh bag a must? Can you just throw these in the washer directly?

I don't know lol. I've never tried making these, but would like to try at some point. I always have a dickens of a time finding lipbalm I like. And when I do find some, they inevitably stop making them lol

I have the exact same problem. I can't stand lip balm that's not minty and every time I find a good peppermint one, poof!, it's gone. I used to get peppermint candy cane lip smackers, but can't find them any more.

I think I'll just try this IF I can find those tubes. Hmmm...

I am so impressed! I would love to make a wedding gown, but I get really frustrated with things that aren't quick!

Keep going with it! You are on the right track and your work is beautiful.
