First classical tutu I have made.
I created the decoration on the bodices. I reworked the bodices and overskirts by dying them, removing the sleeves and turning them into puffs, and the bodices into spaghetti straps.
This is a before photo; I crated the design on the front and reworked this costume by dying the bodice and overskirt, and removed the sleeves, turning it into a spaghetti strap bodice.
I decorated the front of the butterfly costume, and painted the spots on both sides (were only on one side).
I created these three from scratch, to fit three tall girls and three short girls in one production (three at a time). The skirts adjust inside to shorten or lengthen quickly.
This tutu was made by Miss Jill's mother; I added some jewels and lace to the bodice and the skirt; I also made the crown.

I added the feathers and lace to the Meadowlark's tutu, and created the headpiece; I made the tiger salamander costume from scratch (thanks to the thrift stores!). I also made the monarch's antennae headpiece!
Made this Chinese costume, a skirt, a multi-layered belt and the long sleeved blouse, with a jeweled headpiece.

Arabian Costume for Nutcracker
For this costume, I duplicated the existing bra in a larger size, and added fringe. I made the pants basque like the original skirt, and designed the slit pants with cuffs to accommodate girls of varying heights.
