What to wear for New Year's Eve

I'm trying to decide. I might wear my mom's leather pants from when she was my age. What do we think, people?

Taylor and I are taking a social dance class and we are in a competition called Dancesport! This is our ensemble for our swing number. I made a simple waistband and headband to tie my outfit together.

Wardrobe Chair

I'm in the BYU Women's Chorus again this year, but this time I'm the Wardrobe chair! This means that I am in charge of sizing people for their costume, marking the skirts for hemming, and then hair and makeup for every show we have. Here are some pictures from our very first concert!

Vintage trim

Kimberly's mom, Lauri Meredith, gave me a bunch of old trim. I finally found a project worthy of this beautiful lace! I embellished this tangerine t-shirt. :)

My cousin, Valerie, is moving from Provo. :( This is at our goodbye party!

Wearing the same shirt with my high-waisted pants.

Layering Skirts

I don't know about you, but layering skirts is one of my favorite things to do. 
Yes, that is a real sword.

First off, isn't this lady the greatest? This is Lorraine, who works as a volunteer like me at the Veteran Medical Center of Long Beach. She is one of my favorite people!
I found this dress at DI, or Deseret Industries. It's a Mormon version of Good Will. Anyways, It came with a twisted strap and without any embellishments. I untwisted the strap to set it straight. I also added the trip down the front and the lace on the bottom. And of course, like most of the things I get at a thrift store, I sized it. I think it turned out cute!

Green with whipped cream

I embellished a t-shirt! I got this t-shirt at Banana Republic, but I never really liked wearing it. What do you think? My mother calls it my leprechaun t-shirt, but I think it's darling. (I might wear it on St. Patrick's Day next year though)

Women's Chorus Anniversary Concert!

I just finished the final concert of the year with Women's Chorus! In this last show, I had a small acting role. I needed to be a frivolous girl that a boy named Antonio was pining for. Sister Applonie wanted someone with a flamboyant personality wearing a big bow or flower for the part, so she thought of me! I put this headpiece together and she loved it!

Hayli and Karstin sewing extravaganza!

Hayli wanted to make an apron for her friend, so we had a sewing party! Obviously we had to wear tutu's. We made our own pattern.

This pink polyester dress used to have long sleeves. I transformed it into a halter dress. I love the keyhole detail.

Mini skirt transformed to a skirt suitable for church!
I wanted the scalloped edges not to be sewn down, but free. I finished the edges of it by hand and then sewed a straight line at the top to attach the bottom part of the skirt to the top.
