Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! I’m pretty happy today. Our show in Salem tomorrow, Some Enchanted Evening, is completely sold out! After two shows in new venues, we’re back to our familiar stomping grounds at Deacon Giles Speakeasy Lab.

Also, Monday is my birthday!

Here’s your tip!

When using elastic in your costumes, if possible, make a casing instead of stitching it down.

When the elastic inevitably loses its elasticity, you can easily replace it by opening the casing a little, pulling out the old elastic and threading in a new piece. It’s a little fussy, but better than not being able to wear the costume anymore.
