Serious amounts of tedious sewing. I had a large order of football jerseys (nameplates, numbers), getting winter coats and hunting coats for new zippers and lots of regular hems. I think I had fifty hems last week.

I was thinking of just inventing my own project to be busy with for a while Wink Something involving feathers, me thinks...

I love using the sequin strips to cover the bras! I may have to try that, I am wanting to make myself some sequin-y things!

Wow, looks very time intensive but it is coming along nicely.  Very clever using undergarments for the base and building on to them! 

It will be fun to see how this progresses so hope you keep posting on this.

Since you work with costumes, I wanted to share this link with you for a tutorial for a Burlesque Bustle Skirt that you might me able to use sometime that was posted by Becca K. at Cutout and Keep.  She also has a few other interesting costume pieces that might give you inspiration also if you click on her profile then her projects.

Happy crafting!
