Yeah, wow, more than 40 hours later, we have something that is actually a DRESS! I can’t wait for the dancer to come and try this on. I’m hoping that everything fits alright. I’m not happy with the elastic sequin straps, but there isn’t much I can do about it. I took the leotard pattern and made a lining for the back, as well as the front, so that I could sew the movable upper straps into the bodice cleanly. Instead of making a lot of flaps and sewing them down to the bodice, I’m going to suggest the outlines with more of the fabric glitter and glue.
I need to sew on the last gemstones on the back and front, and then glue glue glue!
