I'm a part of our local theatre group. We are very small, so each of us is responsible for our own costuming. I chose to make my own this year because I had visions Smiley  Each of the three pieces was made to be completely reversible so my character, Barbara Seville, could have costume changes.  I created the patterns as well as did all the sewing.  It took me way longer than I thought it would and totally was down to the wire, refitting the corset part right before show time, after the snaps kept popping during dress rehearsal. But I got a lot of compliments on it, so that's a win!

This is an amazing costume. How clever of you to make the pieces reversible for so many looks using the same dress and corset, wow!

Thank you so much!  It was the cheapest/easiest way to make many outfits, so I went with it! lol I think by the end of both nights, I'd worn it every way I could so it was totally worth the effort.

Wow, that's some dedication, making your own costume, and a reversible one at that!  You look lovely and I'm sure you lit up the stage!

I'm not involved in theatre at all, but I live in a small town, and I know that our local performance group struggles to put on productions too.

I rotated and cropped your two sideways photos:

Thank you for flipping them! So much easier than having to tilt heads lol

Our town village is 285 people big (maybe 750 if you count the farms within a 50km radius).  It's amazing that about 10-20% of the population can pull together for a cause, and bring people from quite a ways out for a few nights of amazing fun.

Yikes, my town has a population of about 4,000 souls, and I thought that was small!  You've definitely got us beat at 285-750.  That just shows that the arts will always find a way to flourish despite a smaller population to create and enjoy them!

Very true, the arts will never die, and will always be a welcome and needed part of society!
