Lady GaGa Dance Costume part 1

Lady GaGa we do love your wacky costumes until we have to recreate them or something that looks GaGa-ish. The dance is going to look amazing.
My daughter is totally hating this costume & I'm not so happy sewing it as the thread keeps braking when I sew the foam. I have had to stop sew or I'll throw something & that's not so good.

These pink things are the skirt they need a silver waistband & cross over straps.



The sliver things are the shoulder pads, I think they look like tranies boobs.
It still needs the black leotard.
So here it is so far. I'll have it finished tomorrow.

There's a bear in there.

This is the bear costume I've been working on.
My Darling Daughter's dance school is in the Myer Christmas Parade as well as walking in the parade they are dancing on the Red Carpet too. So very excited for them.
So Melbourne people the parade starts at 11am & finishes at about 1pm. The parade starts at the top of Bourke St & ends at Queens St. Everyone come in and support this Melbourne institution.


 
 

How Cute is this costume I just hope it's not too hot on Saturday. The rest of the costumes are amazing.
It's going to be a great day.

A Story About a Top

This is the story of  lovely lace ( a curtain), a pattern from a time long ago(a time I remember like it was yesterday), a crafty mummy( that's me) & a fair maiden(my teenager).
The fair maiden was in a fit of despair she had nothing to wear, a trip to the shops was the only answer to her plight, "We need to go to Knox" she cried.  "Oh but sweet child" I replied "Never fear your darling mummy knows just what to do".(also the bank of mummy is closed) So to my trusty fabric stash & pattern box I went.
To find this Ace(cool 80's word) 1980's pattern & a lace curtain that I just couldn't part with.
So a very cool Lace Batwing top I created. The drama was averted & the mummy was once again the best mum in the world.
The End.
