Naughty Needles Burlesque

Here’s half of the clamshell bikini for the mermaid act in the Naughty Needles Burlesque.

Which reminds me!

If you’ve volunteered to knit for this, I’m going to be sorting out my first round of requests tonight. I’ll have some yarn for specific projects, but this is a zero-budget operation, so any stash contributions would be well appreciated.

To make things easy, I’m going to compile a list of basics we’ll need (lots of pasties, g-strings, mitts, some gloves, etc.), sort those out, and then ask volunteers for more complicated items–mostly clothing layers. For those, I’ll give you general proportions or some reference images, but you’ll be able to do whatever you like within those parementers.

I’d love to get most of this here by 4/14, so I can distribute it all at the dress rehearsal. But that’s less than four weeks away, so only commit to a bigger project if you’re a fast knitter. (I’ve got some wiggle room with the date, but it would be great for the dancers to get maximum practice with their costumes.)
I’ll need to keep the items you knit, but I can provide photos of the final costumes for everyone. And of course, you’ll be thanked in the program (and I’ll send you a copy, as well as the promo postcard).

Also, we’re planning to sell or auction some goodies to benefit Planned Parenthood of Kansas City, so any burlesque-y naughty knitted donations would be appreciated as well (fancy pasties, g-strings, bikinis, gloves, that sort of thing).

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing how this clam outfit finishes up!
    I was just looking at a pattern for a knitted pastie online and thinking how there should be more of it.

    I’m mad about knitting and burlesque so a knitted burlesque has me fascinated. I’m going to be lurking impatiently to see the finished results.
