Thanks!  I'm gonna give it a go soon.
22  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Siren Costumes for community water ballet on: August 12, 2010 10:15:45 AM
So, I've worked with this community based performance art group I co-founded for 11years now, and have gotten pretty good at a few very esoteric things.  I can bang out water ballet costumes super fast, figure out what is doable in roller skates & stretch a buck awful far.  For non-water based shows we use a lotta reconned thrift store stuff, but in the water that's a little impossible.  Many directors/ costumers order unitards & trick them out, but for my Siren ladies this year I worked from scratch, with no pattern & very few measurements.  Considering the time & money constraints I think they turned out cute! 

These gals played Sirens in our campy version of Jason & the Argonauts.  More info about the group can be found here:  www.fluidmovement.org.  I went with a different kind of Siren/ mermaid, splitting them in half vertically instead of horizontally.  It looked great with some of our water choreography.

Sorry for sideways photo, this is my first post after years of lurking.

Wow!  Did you starch the bejeezus out of it?  It is so perfectly pressed & the fabric really transcends the sheety look!

Love the whole ensemble!  Nice choice making lotsa small pieces.  I especially love the shorts.  However did you figure them out without a pattern?  Whenever I try to fit something well around the bum in non-stretchy fabric I end up failing miserably.  Maybe it's just my bum!

I love that they're in love!  PS:  green olives on pizza are also amazing.  Gotta try the pickles!

So awesome, gonna try this!  Re: wrinkles, I think the problem is a lot of these men's shirts are meant to be dry cleaned with lotsa starch.  Might be worth trying to get a creation dry cleaned if the wrinkliness bugs you, and ask for lotsa starch!  Just my two cents.

FAB!  I wonder, could you give a quick shirring tute?  Or just a description of how you did it?

I finally finish Clapotis (from Knitty.com), should've frogged back to where I dropped some stitches but was afraid I'd get the twists a effed up... now one of my rows only runs halfway down!  So I wanna redeem myself with a smaller/ shorter project.  Crocheting shrugs for my 2 girls to wear to a wedding, wanna try this for meself!  Now what yarn to use...
