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!
6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Can I brag...just a little? on: May 31, 2013 01:54:09 AM
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?
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: LIP BALM RECIPE on: May 31, 2013 01:26:55 AM
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.
