Waltz of the Flowers


Waltz of the Flowers

It is kind of simple... just not clean and graphic.

I made the Flower costumes for the dance studio where my girls danced. Each silk petal (60 per costume) is hand dyed. I made them in 2001 and didn't sleep for weeks in order to finish them on time. :)
My daughter, Annette, is the dancer on the far right.

    You've created a beautiful LO - it really emphasizes the dancers' grace and has such a nice ethereal feel. The costumes are amazing! (I hope you managed to stay awake for the recital!)
