Another ready to bling

A very excited young lady picked up the leotard made to her choice of design and colour on Friday; and the mum is now taking a deep breath and starting to bling....

Looking forward to seeing this one on the floor at Xtreme as well :)

The perseverance continues

Tink came home from training very proud of herself:
Her coach liked it so much she whipped out her phone to take this photo to send to me :)
Thanks, Marta!

Sweet Talking Candyman

Another gymnast for whom I've made leotards for the past 3 years has new music and new apparatus this year.  This is for her rope routine:
Her music is Christina Aguilera's Candyman so we decided to go for the clean 'military' look as per the video, with a holo red butt to match the red rope.  I have still to make her other two leos (they are cut out and started - not due until the Wellington comp in early June), but it's good to get one done early :)

For Grace

Grace is a lovely gymnast that I've made two leotards for over the past 3 years.  This is her choice for this year:

She and I agreed the design needed sleeves.  I'm looking forward to seeing her in it at the Xtreme competition on May 21st - go well Grace!

Ready, Set, Bling

The 2017 rhythmic competition season is due to start very soon... and people are realising that the need for a new leotard is real (this includes Tamsin, lol).
Therefore, I have a queue of leotards to make.
Picked up last night, ready for the gym mom to bling, is Miss Simply Elegant:

Yes, you have seen that concept before - I made it for Tink in orange glitter velvet.  The young lady really liked it, but it didn't fit so asked for one to be made in her size, but pink.
And quite right, as this pink really, really suited her.

While you weren't looking

One of the lovely Howick RG girls popped up needing a new leotard for 2017 and this is what I did based on the design she liked:

Love the colours she chose; and it was fun to make :D

Let the blinging commence...

Tink got a lovely new Venturelli rope last year (cos she's STILL growing) in a very nice fuschia colour.  My favourite dance fabric shop also happened to bring in a range of stretch lace.
This, of course, meant:

Just add bling! LOTS of bling....
