Another New Look
This is New Look 6309. It's out of print now. I first made it a few years ago for a my daughter's very first dance solo. It's for a character piece about a little girl who finds an injured bird. (I also made the bird!)
I used a stormy blue cotton sateen with a pleated cream trim on the collar and sleeves and a cream velvet ribbon around the waist. I much prefer the fabric in this version to the sandwashed linen I used for the previous one (pictured below). The linen looked lovely up close, but a little washed out on stage.
