SO, way back when I was 16 or 17 ... in the mid-90s anyway... I was going to skate to Stravinski's "Firebird Suite".
I know, I know... but I LOVED it, and was always big on using big, triumphant music.
... but then I got in a car accident, ruined my back, and haven't competed since. The dress never got worn.
Anyway, going through some old photos and stuff recently, I came across a very, very old sketch of that dress:
... and I decided to remake it, as a sample dress for my business.
I love it!
The original one was embellished with sequins - hologram finish, if I recall correctly - but I like it a lot better with the crystals, this time around:
Edit to Add: Since writing this, I've actually posted a whole "How I Made That: Flames Skating Dress" on my sewing blog.
