In 2010, our theme was BROADWAY, she performed her program to Once Upon A Time, from the Broadway musical, Brooklyn.
Because the song is about fairy tales, and believing that anything can come true if you wish for it or believe in it, we decided to include some pink tulle in it's design. She also wanted it to be pink. The tricky part was how to include some "street looking graffiti" in the costume since the musical takes place on the streets of Brooklyn. This required some thought.
My family had given me a serger for Christmas so I was excited to give it a try on this costume. I decided to experiment with costume separates (mix and match) so i designed it with a skirt that had a fold down waistband. Underneath the folded waistband I sewed in snaps which allowed the tulle skirt to be attached to the underskirt in the event she ever wanted to wear the other skirt alone.
Skirt with fold down waistband with attached briefs. (see below)
Under the waistband are hidden snaps to attach the
tulle skirt which has the snaps sewn into the inside of the waistband.
