I was taking my time making a new dress for church this week. When Wed. I get an email from Sonja wanting mini skirt belly dance costumes for her and Rach for an upcoming photo shoot we are doing on Sunday...
well... I can turn out some costumes when I want... but I haven't got all the 'stuff' I need to make the costumes...
haven't researched out what 'vision' they have for a costume.. haven't put together what I think works and let them approve before I start...
But here I am trying to pull 2 modern mini skirt belly dance costumes out of thin air!
I'm feeling very Project Runway!
To the left is what I have of Sonja's so far.... which I like... and I'm kinda wishing it was mine! I'm loving the color scheme and the use of black fancy net fabric. The cut outs on the side will more than likely have to be hand beaded.. which will be the main time consuming thing to do. It really needs to be "peppered" with rhinestones and I'm afraid I'm not going to have enough... we'll see... I have made a sexy black net gauntlet to go with it that I really do what to keep..
I am limited with this fabric though (scrap stash!) and don't think I'll have enough for me to keep one! Thats the problem with making stuff for other people.. I always want to keep what I make!
Breaks over, back to work.
