    There was a diamond trim you used. where do you get that? I have been searching for weeks now and still can't find it maybe I'm using the wrong name?
    Search for "strass", "strass chain", "rhinestone chain" or "cup chain".

    STRASS.com - CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements has a large variety of them (one of the first relevant google hits I got)

    AH! Thank you so much! I was at such a loss at what to look for!

    That's very useful info, it is often hard to find a proper bra. I live in Australia so we have different brands. We do have those really strong ones, but they have the wrong shape for me. I always end up with a different bra and reinforce it with buckram.
    Btw beautiful bra designs!

    ETA: you have so much patience! To do all that bead work. My costumes are often much more simple, just because I am lazy hehe.

    That works well too, plus too much bling on blingy fabric is an overload!

    I just had to add this to my bookmarks. I'll read through every inch of it and I am already anticipating more!

    Shushanna, I tried the thread casing technique for sleeves and it worked well! Thank you!

    Now, if only I could figure out why my elastic has suddenly decided to curl in on itself . . .

    Shushanna this is fantastic! Most of the ladies I dance with make their own costumes and I'm always amazed by what they can do! I would love to be able to make my own costumes (especially being so short and virtually everything pre-made is too long) and after reading this I feel like I might be able to create something using your tutorial! Thank you so much for sharing! I hope I can find some time to practice soon!

    I'm glad it helped you! You might want to use "Non-Roll" elastic. I think regular elastic will have a tendency to curl in.
