This is Andy's costume for Hello Dolly before the final tweaks, like fitting the waist and cinching the top, but you get the general idea of just how much gathered orchid polyester I have created in the last week. The skirt must weigh 10lbs. I hope she can still dance in it. After this experience I have great respect for the artists who make the headgear for the gals in Vegas. They must have the best hot glue guns in the world.
We were lucky enough to come across the perfect prom dress alleviating the need for me to make one.
I am so grateful! She looks like a movie star and I can move on to another project.
