Struggling with those stretchy seams? Afraid of tackling the glitz and glam of lycra costumes? Want to make a super cool spandex creation for your next circus show, burlesque act, cosplay, or dance recital? Maybe you just wanna look super fierce in your next silks class! This workshop is designed to give you all the knowledge and confidence to start making your own stretchy costumes.

We'll tackle the process step by step, from selecting the design and fabrics, all the way to putting the final touches on the garment. T will show you all the required techniques using practical demonstrations and visual aids. You will learn the secret tips and tricks that make your costume pop without making your checking account drop!
