Ballet Costume

Miss S has been doing ballet for 3 years.
They have a large concert at the end of the year.
Ive made her costumes each year, and although it is the busiest time of the year, I really do enjoy it.
We are given our fabric and a rough pattern of the leotard to trace onto brown paper.

Each year I say have we got a set of instructions....(insert crickets)
No, we will just get on with it shall we!!!

So I pick the dressmakers brains and madly take notes.
Lets hope it looks something like everyone elses when Im done.
We've got a month the make it, but Im getting started now just in case.
Its a "star" costume.
Navy satin leotard, 3 layer navy net skirt with a jersey overlay with gold stars outlined in sequins.
Should look great on stage.

    You know if you can sew a leotard you could probably have a go at bathers!
