Sewing for the high school play! This time around they are doing Seussical and I making costumes/dresses for two of the main characters Gertrude and Mayzie, who are bird girls.
These are the patterns which I'm using.
I have already made muslins; I especially wanted to test the halter dress for cleavage and to make sure there's no gaping. Of course I'm already prepared with double sided sticky tape to make sure that neckline stays put ;-)
My biggest challenge is going to be working with feathers. The ultimate challenge? How to make Gertrude's tail grow on stage. Yeap, I'll let you know how it goes.
