Mary Poppins skating dress
So when I'm not teaching tuffets or other classes, I spend a lot of time making skating costumes! You might remember my previous post about the synchronized skating team costumes I made last fall. Since then I've been spending a lot of time teaching or at skating competitions. Right now I'm also making a few individual costumes. Here's Molly's friend who is skating to "A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down" at a competition tomorrow:
She'll be wearing white tights at the competition and I think she'll look great! Of course, a can of Static Guard will have to be no more than ten feet away from her at all times! There are a couple of layers of tulle between a base layer of swimsuit lining fabric and a top layer of glissenette, which means there will be a lot of static.
We had a sweet Valentine's Day at Quintessential Quilts in Madison! Our small group persevered through the snowy weather. It's hard to believe it's supposed to be 51 tomorrow!
