    This is probably and easy question but i need to make a las vegas type showgirl outfit - and would love to include a feather boa bustle ( ain't got the skills for a fantail)
    has anyone got any idea how to start this? All i can think of is the basic attach to elastic to tie round waist.

    an easy non sewing method might be to try some ribbon around the middle of each boa at intervals, then use the ribbon to try around your waist. Ive always sewn mine, but the PrinciPles the same.

    sorry i cant do a P unless its in caPitals for some reason...:question:
