The show isn't until May, so you will see a number of posts about the various costumes I have to make. I work full time outside of the home, so I will be mostly a weekend warrior! (I'm sure I will have some help on some things, so don't worry - I'll survive.) The difficulty with The Sound of Music is that the 7 Von Trapp children need several matching sets of costumes. Combined with 5 nuns in full habit and that makes for a lot of fabric. I started with my own Pinterest board "Sound of Music" where I have collected and categorized the various costume ideas I could find (and there were many!). Feel free to peruse for ideas and follow me on Pinterest!
In addition to some full costume construction from fabric, I'm hoping to upcycle and adapt some inexpensive new clothing items. I'm excited about this challenge - stay tuned to see the updates.
