Getting there

My dance skirt is coming along just great! I feared I wouldn’t have it ready for a show on the 25th, but a day off changed my perspective

In the end I decided to stitch both side seams, after contemplating some smart fastening device on one side to get into it more easily. I used a sturdy, broad elastic sewn onto the waist and folded over- I wanted to be able to step into the skirt. (at shows there’s sweat and make up to consider when changing outfits quickly, the over-your-head alternative is an unnecessary stress adder:)

At the pictures, I have just hand sewn the left side onto me (as well as onto my underwear) and haven’t yet put a fastener at the waist.

Need to hem it and then I can start working on the top!
