Kitri Bodice Photo 5

"I stitch all of the pieces together and make adjustments to be sure that the bodice has a snug fit on the form. A bodice is like a second skin but you do not want it so tight that it will affect the dancing! Because I am designing a costume that will be worn by other dancers, I will need to take into consideration different proportions of dancers that may be wearing this costume in the future. To help with fitting different sizes, I leave a bit of fabric near the back enclosure so that additional hooks an eyes may be added."
