If you'r going with Carlotta I would definitely consider her red dress. Veyr gorgeous! But the use of fur in her grey one is great too. I don't know if I would do the hannibal, though--that's a little over the top for a show, even if it's themed.

Yeah, from what I've heard, people in New York are pretty snobby when it comes to people going to shows in costume. But Little Joanne was so cute in her dress I bet that no one minded :D

I'm thinking we should call when we hear that they are *going* to be on sale, before they do, then see if you can request seats, pay in advance, bake them a cake, do them a favor, etc, until they give them to you :wink:

Yes, she certainly did! And the songs were a nice change from the flutteri-ness that she usually sings.

Alright, i was mpulsive today and Joanns had a sale, so I went and bought some fabric. It is a pale ice blue poly (yuck, but it's the same base fabric I ...

Hmmmmm....Those are very pretty! I was thinking satin maybe, but I ll have to see what Joann's has because I want to start it soon and I'm just too impatient to wait for it to arrive if I order it!!

New corset ideas?

Hello all, I'm thinking about making a new LM corset. I already have a plain white twill one, and I'd like this one to be a little more fun. Since you all know how unimaginative I am when it comes to this sort of thing, any suggestions? I'd like it to be somewhat practical for wearing under dresses,...
