Beautiful in pink

For our latest show we executed over 35 outfits that had to be made raw....20 of those were for the Beautiful Girls number. We made a progression of pink flapper dresses that went from pale pink to a vibrant orange. They each had a vintage rhinstone buckle at the shoulder and a pink headband to tie everything together. Each dress was custom made for the girls' measurements, so that they could dance in them and feel comfortable. This was probably the biggest overall task that my girls and I had to tackle for this production of "Singing in the Rain". We also made the sparkly pink top hat, to go with the tux (which was donated for the event).
