Star Styles

So I finally tracked down this book, Star Styles. It arrived today!! I can't wait to delve into it. It's hard to find,it's a book and pattern for making baton twirling costumes. I don't think it's been reprinted since 1968 and I've had a heck of time finding it. But I managed to locate a brand new one, still sealed in the plastic with the pattern brand new, never opened for $4.50. I've seen it on Amazon for $25.

This past year was Em's first year doing baton twirling solos, so we rented a costume from her studio and it was just not up to my standards, lots of repairs from many years or use, so next year I'm designing my own with the help of this book. I'm so excited to get started!

Ooh, I love those retro books with patterns and stuff! I found a great one last fall in a thrift store, with patterns for those little "hats" women used to wear. And a glove pattern!

Welcome back to blogland! (Oh, btw, I LOVE the Jemima J book. I read it long after I already had my business name, tho.)
