Project Project Runway #10 - I Get a Kick Out of Fashion

This week's challenge:

"Yea, it’s time for a fun, slightly out-there challenge.

Design a new costume for the Rockettes. It needs to be versatile enough to wear year round (i.e. not a Christmas costume). It needs to look good up close and far away. It should also look modern." (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)

I had a tough time with this challenge because I didn't get the benefit of going to Mood - twice.

I just don't have very much sparkly fabric in my current stash.  Wha?!! I know - you would hardly expect that of me!

Anyway, here's what I came up with:

As you can see, I added the drama by using a bold print.  On this scale, it looks even bolder.

Then I added the sparkly by using a decorative star and a few jewels on the ends of the large fringe.

Here's Sally doing her best Rockette's kick! Hmmm dolls aren't very flexible. 

Anyway, I think it turned out OK.  It'll definitely be different from everyone's.  I like the way the big fringe moves.  And I sewed some booty short underneath the whole thing to make sure that all her parts were covered. 

It has green so it could be used in a Christmas show I guess.  But she looks more like a hula girl than a Rockette.  Ooooops!  Oh well, maybe they'll have a summer themed show that this would be perfect for. hehehe

I think you totally would have been safe this week. You took it in an unexpected direction which I think works.
