Those are really pretty, I am alittle to shy/old :sleep: for all that glitter though, I like the horse to be the flashy one.

I try to stay away from wearing too much black, dont' want to look like the "bad guy", ha ha. I have a really nice new beige hat and only show in the summer, so I am trying to go with the chocolate, which makes his black look blacker, or sand type colors, and I always mix in a little blue so he doesn't feel like a princess. (Although he acts like one,, tee hee)
good ideas, though, keep em comin'!
It is not the quality of silver on your horse, it is the quality of horse under your silver.

I am 57, and I plan on wearing a shirt similar to the brown one, with brown chaps...(saving some fabric back) and I plan on also making a Hunter green outfit. I will make the whole green outfit, even the chaps. I know Hunter isn't "in" right now, but I detest olive green, and since I am a designer.... ;)

Apologies to those who are trying to "quit" LOL. These folks were at the Scottsdale show and had some really pretty outfits. Very similar to the Show Season look - but (a little) less expensive I think. I LOVE the white jacket she has on her site - she had it displayed at the show and the picture does not do it justice.

The only problem with those is that she used the strands of crystals, and hand sewed them on. So she doesn't have much time involved in setting stones. If the thread holding them on starts coming loose, you will have a whole strand coming loose. If crystals are rim set, or hotfixed on, and you lose one, it's easy to replace. These would be a nightmare to try and fix. Other than that they're nice.

Hmmm, interesting. It's always good to get the POV of someone who knows about this stuff. My experience as a seamstress amounts to a couple pillowcases for the dog beds and a couple lop-sided scrub tops LOL.

It has been a real learning adventure for me. I used to put snaps on cuffs...but then realized the snaps that I used to put on baby clothes, which had to be yanked off to change them...aren't made like they used to be. Now that stuff comes from China, and they are junk. So, I use double lock velcro. I have to get all my zippers from a little store in NY, but they are all YKK which is the best.
Goes back to...stuff is not made in USA anymore.

The glittery blue shirt labeled 6545...that fabric looks wonderful in the ring but be prepared after your class to look as though you've been sprinkled with fairy dust!
