OK a proud Mum post is coming up. This is Eve my daughter doing a single point trapeze act. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
If you want to see more of her videos. Eve’s youtube page is to be found here.
Just to stay on topic a little Eve wants a full circle skirt and top for this act. It’s going to be another interesting challenge because I have to create a skirt that will not fall over her head. The way trapeze artists do it (and it is done on this skirt) is to work a 3 inch line of stitching between the knees. It’s just enough to keep the skirt behaving.
In case you wonder about beading acting to weigh the skirt down. It is not a good idea because if for some reason the skirt gets caught on the trapeze and beads are between the trapeze bar and say and the ankle it’s very painful.
Eve is home for Christmas and will be leaving straight after Christmas to perform at Woodford in Queensland then on to another festival in Tasmania at Signet.
