Building Birds, Part 2

March 29th, 2011
Last week, I showed you the construction of the bodice front for this Magic Flute bird designed by Susan Branch.
Now, we decorate!

The bodice front is created with layers of crushed stretch velvet, fun fur yarn and feathers.

All layers are attached using the sewing machine.

The finished bodice front will eventually be attached to a back and tail piece and then to the tutu itself.

All six bird bodices are ready to continue on to the next step!

The tutu skirts will be arriving in the shop soon and we will begin to fit those on the dancers and pattern out the tails.  Tune in next week!
