I've seen some pretty nice outcomes using similar techniques - and I've seen some train wrecks as well. You won't know until you're into it! Looking forward to the results...Plan to glue the appliques to the skirt, belt and bra. Will it work? Who knows, I'm still in the glue stage.
I'd be interested in hearing your techniques for teaching Zills. I've been asked to...Update- holiday season (Oct., Nov., Dec.) = utter chaos. Renovated and painted three rooms. Company is coming for a visit. Getting ready for Hogwarts Triwizard tournament (Halloween party and treasure hunt) for fifteen kids. Which also means making the property safe for small people hopped up on sugar. Have I worked on dance costumes? No. But I have taken dance classes and taught a two hour zills class (that was cool). Mostly listening to Egyptian music (cd's) on an old boom box and dancing in the kitchen. Wishing everyone joy and happiness this holiday season.
