The Black Swan Tutu

Just a quick post with the only sewing I have done recently - a costume for a soiree I attended this weekend! The theme was 'A Celebration of Dance!'

I decided on Thursday night I wanted to come as the Black Swan, based on the costume from the recent movie. I bought 8m of tulle and got sewing!!

The tutu is 8 layers of gathered tulles, sewn on to a pair of underwear! The first 4 were sewn on by machine, but I got worried it wouldn't manage well with the rest so I sewed the last ones on by hand! I found an old black bodysuit, and with some feathers and rhinestones, I was all set!

I ended up taking home the prize for best dressed, too :)

Unfortunately I have to go back to exam study now.... but on the 12th November, I will sit my last exam for my degree, and on the 26th, I will start full-time work for the first time, after 19 years of education :)

While I'm here, a quick thanks to everyone who participated in the Patterns and Postcards swap with me!! It was a whole lot of fun, and I hope you all enjoy your new pattens and magazines. I know I will!

Now wish me luck for my exams, and I will see you on the other side!!!! :D
