Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

For the girls - the white shirt is a basic school uniform shirt.  Also for the off white shirt -- we can get a second school shirt and tea dye.  The sailor collars will have to be made for the boys and girls.

Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

A few things - 3 of the girls have white party dresses already (Gretl, Marta and Brigitta).  I brought one for Gretl tonight.  Therefore, can we please do white.  I do not want to have another dress made if at all possible. 

We are going to make the sailor collars - please do not buy any trim.  I will buy enough for all the kids.  Everyone should just buy some extra white fabric.  I will also get the navy inset fabric for the collar.

Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

Kathleen, I'm coordinating hair and makeup - can we get together sometime soon?  I'd like to see what you have people wearing so I can match the basic look.  Also I need a breakdown of the characters and their various needs and it looks like you have a nice handle on that.  Let me know your availability.

Thanks!!!
Julie

Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

Hi Julie, nice to meet you. I usually make it to all the rehearsals, so if you can make it one evening that would be great. Otherwise, I am free Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and can meet with you any of those days. My cell number is 985 502 4206 if you would like to get in touch with me.

Beth - were you referring to the shirts for the girls?

Babette - White should be fine since we already have three. It will be easy to get white fabric (or dresses....) for the other 2 girls. 



                                                                                              - Kathleen

Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

I think she meant the sailor collars.  White shirts aren't worth making, as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

I have purchased the blue sash fabric and ribbon to match for the hair.  I also ordered white ribbon for other scenes.  I am getting the grey fabric for the girls skirts.  I will buy everyones and you can just pay me back.  It shouldn't be much.

I have also purchased the fabric and ribbon for the sailor collars (for boys and girls) -- now we just have to make them.

Re: Sound of Music Costume Patterns and Fabric

I did not have any luck finding a nice gray print for the skirt.  I will probably be making yet another trip to hobby lobby tomorrow - please let me know if you want me to pick up the solid gray for you.
