saloon girl costumes designed for the dancers. I used a simplicity pattern but altered it so the costumes were easy for quick changes and have two different looks. the costume consists of a skirt that i drafted with attached petticoat, shorty bloomers, bodice with attached bustle and fascinator. the costumes were done in six different colours.there is a side zip and lacing at the back so the costumes will fit more than one person. I stitched all the ribbon on….I used about 10 metres of satin ribbon for each costume. One costume needed a lot of fiddling as the lady was pregnant and kept changing size! Not something I had ever had to take into account before. The fascinators were very simple-some card, fabric, glue gun, bits of feather boa, flower and elastic.There is a little bit of boning in the bodice but not too much or you can’t dance! I have also made my hubby a matching waistcoat and we have used these costume for fancy dress parties and even dressed roxy as a leopard and been a circus act!
satin, lining fabric, 60 metres of satin ribbon, eyelets, zips, net (hidden inside bustle to puff them out), cotton (for bloomers), card, boas, flowers, glue gun, elastic.
