I am going to a Playcentre fundraiser tonight, a quiz night, and our table has opted to do a Bollywood theme... groannnnn! I am not good with dress ups....
Yesterday a couple of us got together to sort out costumes. I managed to find an old sheer gold curtain, and some shimmery orange satin from the op shop. The others got some bright pink/green floral fabric and matching organza from Ikes and we found some great trims in spotlight to contrast.
We sewed up some quick long skirts out of the lengths of fabric, then will use the organza (or in my case gold curtain) as sari's.
Last night I sat and hand stitched the lush turquiose sequined trim down the length of my curtain.
The girls had fun this morning trying everything on and clipping the gold chains in their hair :-)
... Now I just have to psych myself up for it :-)
