As mentioned last week, our friend Heidi was getting married, and Kate and I were both bridesmaids and hosting her bachelorette party. Did we also mention Heidi wanted to do something '80's themed? Heidi is younger than Kate and I by a little bit, so for her the style aesthetic of the 1980s is not her early childhood. It's somehow "cool" I guess.
Heidi wanted matching tutus. She had seen a bachelorette party somewhere wear them. Kate and I don't fit into party store cheap tutu costumes. To the sewing table!
We ended up with a pretty cute costume. The skirt was just a bunch of tulle gathered and basted to an elastic belt. We wore black leggings underneath.
It turned out pretty cute, if I do say so! We wore our tops during the day and put the skirts on for the tea party itself. I even kept the sequined top in my closed for a few months after the bachelorette weekend, but did eventually try to take the sequins off. I sewed it too well and left holes in the stretchy knit undershirt. Oh well - I still have a few scraps of the sequined tiger print!
