I got to be part of a fun challenge called August Mystery Challenge where you are given a blogger, and you pick a theme for them to craft something. I got Tasha from Friends Stitched Together and she gave me the theme of DISCO!!
Make sure to check out what the others have done for their challenge, and what is coming up. Hint hint: I picked a theme for a future one coming later this week.
After pondering disco for a few weeks, thanks to having sisters and a brother born in the late 60s, I finally got inspiration. ELSA! Yes, Elsa from Frozen. Now if you did not see disco and Elsa before, you will see it now. The glitter, the fitted dress, the overpowering confidence. Elsa just embodied all of that. I didn’t want to make the typical Elsa silhouette, but more the colors. I went with a turquoise lame when I could not find the sequined fabric I wanted in the store. I drafted a slight hi-low circle skirt and then drafted a wrap style bodice to make a disco dress. I fully lined it since tissue lame is thin, frays very easily and itchy. I found the perfect sequined headband in a dollar bin and attached ties to make it a belt. Disco queen, here we come. We had fun with it and did some fun makeup and hair. This girl likes to go all out! And we finished it off with a disco ball wristlet.
