I've finally finished sewing my daughter's dance costumes.
Now just got to sort out my son's - but there's nothing to make for his.
And also a good music making day with Oldnotes. Very enjoyable as always.
you sound exactly like the two mothers responsible for the costumes at our dance school!
what type of dancing is it, DawnF?
Tap and ballet.
Daughter needs to be a boy in the Lambeth Walk- Black trousers, white shirt, waistcoat to be decorated with buttons and sequins (picked up a silver sequined "waistcoat" in a ladies size and adapted it - added red buttons and red sequin trim on the tails) and flat cap again covered in buttons and sequins.
Then I needed to make a tutu for the Ballet. It is not easy to see the folds on net when sewing so it went a little lop sided - i.e the lower skirts are slightly shorter than the outer ones. I'm hoping it won't matter. My daughter loves it anyway.
My son is doing teh Bear Necessities and April Showers so bear or boy (shorts ond T-shirt) outfit for the first and a raincoat for the latter is the order of the day. Not too bad to put together.
I have a couple of thoughts - checked shirt and tailored school shorts or casual "leafy" shorts if they fit and bright T shirt with a snake on. Other option, plain bright shorts if i can find some and a plain T shirt - visit to Sainsbury's required.
