Default I need help!

Ok, I was just contacted by a local dance company to see if I could make some hairbows to go with a dance costume. I have no idea what dancers bows should be like but here is the photo of the costume...

She wants me to incorporate matching sequins in there somehow along with the orange. I have no idea what to use or what to do for that matter! What should I do and use? Then she offered to mail me a costume and some headbands that she has but won't be using. Should I have her send the costume? I'm so nervous!

My daughter is a dancer, and I've made tons of hair bows for her studio. I think it really depends on what the teacher has envisioned. I would come right out and ask her what she is looking for size wise, and how the girls will be wearing their hair (ponytail, bun, down w/ sides up??) it may make a difference as far as size. Maybe you can use the sequins to wrap the middle section of the bow, instead of using a knotted center. Also, there really is no dancer hair bow, they are just regular bows made to match.

Thanks. I guess I should mention that she did say this...

"I picture them with more of a big bow they can wear on the top of their head that they can wear with big bouncy curls. I ordered some headbands, but I'm scared it won't be secure in their hair. Maybe something similar to the "bitty bows" but a lot bigger."

Maybe you should try something kind of like a cheer bow. Not necessarily with the long tails, but I think the way the different size ribbons are layered would work really well. Using the sequins as the top layer. Does that make sense? I think those would go great with big curls. Good Luck!

It sounds like she has a "shirley temple" style in mind. Did she specifically ask for headbands? If not, I would attach them to regular french clips. Stretchy headbands may work if they pin them with a ton of bobby pins.

Do you guys think a stacked bow would be too much?

I've made dance bows for my girls as well. I think a stacked bow would be good. But also, do you make the funky loopy bows?? You can add the glitter ribbon and some more shiny stuff in there. Shiny and glitter for dance is good.

That's exactly what I was picturing. The bigger and glittery-er the better!

Aww man! That would probably be a good idea! I haven't bit the bullet and bought the tut for them yet though!

my 3 girls dance so we've seen tons of hair pieces. I would suggest something with a clippie because usually they have to take the headpiece off in a hurry, headbands are good idea too but if you wear up in a pony tail it has the tendancy to slip off, oh and most girls wear the head pieces to the side. I like the funky loop bow and add the colors of the dress in it and don't forget feathers thats big too.
