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.
