I'm re-making tutu's for Ballet New Braunfels' production of The Nutcracker.
I was in the Nutcracker last year, as a snowflake and a flower. This year, what with me being pregnant and delivering my daughter a couple days before the show, I wasn't up to performing.
So I took on a helping roll. I knew the costumes needed some help. I had worn them last year. They were recital costumes so not a lot of thought or care was put into their creation. So, I began jazzing up the flower costumes which were in better shape than the snow, and starting from scratch on the snow costumes.
It's a big project, especially since my sewing machine broke and is a the mechanic for the next two weeks. I hope for lots of volunteers from the parents to help.
This is what we started with for Flowers costumes.
|Not bad, just not very WOW.|
|With a little rick rack and glitter, they are more fun to look at .|
