I was delighted that the Danceline Ladies of Savannah State University (my Alma Mater) were able to wear some of my handiwork. As I mentioned in my last post I had the privilege of embellishing their Tiger print bodysuits with Swarovski crystals (upper bodice) and fringe (around the body suit leg). I also sewed gauntlets (those black fancy gloves) for them to wear. I think their outfits turned out quite lovely, considering the budget/timeframe we had to work with. Here are some professional photos courtesy of the excellent photographer Litus Marshall (you can find him on Facebook). Some of these girls were moving so fast that their very fitted gauntlets didn't even have a hope of staying up on their arms. Now that's some fast dancing!!!! Anyhow, I enjoyed being this project ALOT!!!! I look forward to future opportunities to create/embellish costumes for these lovely ladies!!!
The Capes I made last year for a local High School were borrowed and used by Savannah State University. It's nice to know they're being put to good use!!!!
