For my Self Directed Project I am going to be doing the Dance-wear workshop. I have decided this because I wanted an area of costume that would challenge me and would be completely new to me. I feel I will be able to gain and broaden my knowledge in a costume construction, building on the skills I already have and expanding upon them with this chosen area. To have the knowledge of dancewear construction is something I feel could be highly useful and benifcial to me in the future. In this project I hope to learn how a classical tutu is cut and constructed and about the history of ballet which will help me to gain a better understading of the art itself.
