sewing costumes

I recently volunteered to help a friend from church come up with costumes for a local children’s theater production of Beauty and the Beast.  And, yes, it’s the Disney-fied version with dancing cutlery.  I’m mainly helping with the enchantress and the village girls.

I’ve already learned a lot — for instance, I can now make short-sleeved peasant blouses out of t-shirts, long-sleeved blouses out of men’s dress shirts (thanks to a tutorial on youtube), and lace-up bodices out of tank tops.  Who knew, right? I’ll post pics of some pieces when I have more done.

In the meantime…can’t blog…sewing.  I’ve got more than a dozen blouses and bodices to make — not to mention the aprons and the fancy dress.  And yes, I am having fun.
