Need I say more. Any mother who starts their child in dancing must have rocks in their head. It's costumes here this week. Why do I get into this each year?

Rehearsals for the production of Snow White are rolling along and is only three weeks away. Thankfully Alexandra only does Ballet and Tap Dancing. I thought we had "easy" things to make this year - but boy was I wrong. The set of tales above is for tap dancing and what a nightmare they were. There is enough fabric left over, so given the fit and the disaster they were I think I will make them again!!!! The fairy costume was quite easy to do and thankfully is almost finished.

There are something like 700 costumes in the show this year. Glad I only made two!!!

It will be so lovely to see your little (?) girl dance in your handmade costumes! She will be so proud of you! Have fun with the rehearsels and the final show!

You are a good mum - it may not seem like it now but it will be worth it on the night.
