Need Fabric for Costumes?

Buy sheets! I got some great sheets and curtains at thrift stores for $1-$2 each for the costumes we made for the upcoming musical. It's a much better deal than the price per yard that fabric has risen to these days.

They were great for making Biblical-looking tunics. I may even start making other clothes out of sheets, at such a great price... After all, if the fabric looks nice, no one needs to know that the item used to be a sheet! =)

Read more about the costume construction for "The Amazing Jerusalem Makeover."

Cool idea! I hadn't thought it before. I hope all the preparations are going well! I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!

Dear Anna,

will someone be videoing your production? It would be so nice to see a performance!

Wishing you all the best,

Your admirer

Damask-rose: Yes, we videotaped the production, and we are in the process of making a DVD. I purchased musical licenses in order to be able to legally distribute it. Email me if you are interested in a copy, or I may post on Maidens of Worth about it in the future.
