Trust me, as an old punker I was very against glitter. Glam rock was not really my thing (part from Bowie and even that was when I was a bit older). Also I cannot sew even if my life depended on it. I still can´t! If it wasn´t for Ansku at Saramai I would not have a clue how to do these dresses. She is simply divine: none of my crazy ideas are impossible, she´ll make them all happen! So when I wanted a 40´s inspired dress with a cape-ish thing (think Ginger Rogers) I got one. The brooches are just pinned in here for the photo so they don´t look that good but you get an idea.
The underwear are easier to get a grip of. Here´s a sneak peak, got a bit more done today. The frillies are still unattached on the panties.
Here´s the "whole" (outer) ensemble. There´s still more glitz to come (duh!) but I´m really happy with the outcome. And I have the music! So after the Gala the 15th of October I will start rehearsing this big time.
Then there´s also that Christmas-number I´ve got planned out.... Pheew! Well, ta-ta for now. I´ve declared myself flue-free and am back to work tomorrow!
