Love Story Dancing Dress




Love Story Dancing Dress





As for my interpretation of the theme, I've been a little Valentine's Day challenged in the past (but I'm always optimistic for the future), so hearts and cupids weren't in my plans. But as I pondered the theme, several things came to mind. The first, my grandparents. My Mom's folks were married for decades and going dancing was one of their favorite activities. In fact, that's where they met my Dad's dad and his wife (Grammie Augsburg), who had a wonderful second marriage that lasted 40+ years—both were widowed young and remarried young. They all went dancing at various venues throughout the Chicagoland and surrounding rural (now suburban) areas. When I danced with Grampa Augsburg in my 20s, he'd always tell me I was trying to lead (surprise). So a few years ago, in an attempt to make new friends upon my relocation to Milwaukee, I started taking swing dance lessons. For five years, I've been learning and practicing my East Coast Swing and Lindy Hop moves. I've made some great new friends AND learned to follow and let my partner lead (Grampa would be so proud!). So my love story project has two meanings for me. It expresses my love of dancing and it also honors the love that I have for my grandparents and the fact that they encouraged me to dance. When I'm on the dance floor, I can almost imagine them smiling down on me.

The added benefit of this particular garment is that the dress has a little twirl to it, which is very important when you're dancing, but it's still "office appropriate". Right now, I only have the band and a few couples on the dance floor, but I'm thinking about adding the dancers all the way around the back of the skirt as well. Since the freezer-paper stencils are reusable (as you'll see below), this should be a quick update.

Want to take a spin around the floor and try to create something like this of your own? Here's how.

STUFF YOU NEED
•Garment (My dress was too long, so I saved the part I cut off and used it to audition paint colors and types.)
•Fabric paint (I used Jacquard Lumiere, pewter)
•Paint brush
•Freezer paper
•Patterns (I used clip art from a Dover book)
•Iron, ironing surface, press cloth
•Cutting surface and craft knife (X-Acto)
•Transfer paper and pencil
•Cardboard
HERE'S HOW:
1. Size your patterns to fit your garment. My dance couples are three different sizes, and one is flipped horizontally. Prewash your garment as indicated on the care label, paying attention to any instructions from the paint manufacturer.
2. Layer the following things from bottom to top: freezer paper wax-side down, transfer paper chalk-side down, pattern. Use a pencil to trace around the pattern.
3. Using the craft knife, cut the image out of the freezer paper, creating a stencil.
4. Place the freezer-paper stencil wax-side down on the garment. Use an iron to temporarily attach the freezer paper to the fabric. (Really, this works. Just use a heat appropriate for the fabric.) Note: I'm reusing one in the photo, which is why there's already paint around the edges.
5. Place cardboard under the to-be-stenciled area. Use a paint brush to apply paint within the stencil area. Brush in from the edges so you don't get paint under the edge of the stencil. Note: Mine was a pretty dense knit fabric, so it didn't bleed through, but if your garment is thin, place wax paper over the cardboard under your garment so the cardboard doesn't stick to the fabric.
6. Peel the freezer paper off. You don't want to let it get very dry before you do this, because the paint can stick along the edges of the stencil. But I'd let it dry a little so you don't run the risk of smudging.
7. Let dry and heat-set the paint according to manufacturer's directions.

What's up darlin'?
I been keeping my eye on your movement
I can't see no room for improvement
Why you all over there in your Jack Jones?
You need to let me get behind your backbone
'Cause I'm the man for the job, let me work it
I won't waste no time, I'll make it worth it
One hundred percent, I'll make it worth it
You got a body to die for, let me work it
Now it's murder on the dance floor
I wanna take this further than the dance floor
I ain't forceful but I'm still hardcore
You're gonna give me everything I ask for
It's not a long ting, you're the boom ting
Maybe more than a hotel room ting
I'll never know if I just walk past
I really wanna dance so I guess I'll just ask

She ain't no hoe
Look at those thighs - It's in her eyes
She's good to go
She can satisfy my mind, body and soul
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me

I see you glance at me
That's why I'm asking be
So let's party be
Come and dance with me

If I'm on my own
Then I can look at you
(Looking at me)
If I'm out on a date
I just shut my eyes
(Then I can't see)
Get away from the bar
Tell your boyfriend, "Hold your jar"
And dance with me

I see you glance at me
That's why I'm asking be
So let's party be
Come and dance with me

Yo, it goes on and on
I see you get excited
Like this is my song
You think I wanna get involved
You done nothin' wrong
'Cause I been waiting for this moment all night long
So I creep, creep creep back to your seat
I got my left eye checking out your scenery
I got my right eye right where it needs to be
Don't matter how I look at it
You look good to me
Still, I'm looking for the perfect view
The way I see it, that's right next to you
I know you've probably heard it before but still
I love it when you flex like that for real
So don't stop doing what you do when you do it
I just wanna be a part of it when you do it
I'll feel like a wally if I don't pursue it
And I can't go through it
So let's get to it

She ain't no hoe
Look at those thighs - It's in her eyes
She's good to go
She can satisfy my mind, body and soul
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me

I see you glance at me
That's why I'm asking be
So let's party be
Come and dance with me

I know you didn't come out to stand and stare
You bought new shoes - and you did up your hair
You made a real effort tonight and it shows
I can tell by your face you don't wanna be alone
'Cause the mood is right and the time is now
And if you can't do it I'll show you how
All you gotta do is get loose, let go
Just throw a couple shapes
Put your skills on show, oh

If I'm on my own
Then I can look at you
(Looking at me)
If I'm out on a date
I just shut my eyes
(Then I can't see)
Get away from the bar
Tell your boyfriend, "Hold your jar"
And dance with me

I see you glance at me
That's why I'm asking be
So let's party be
Come and dance with me

If I'm on my own
Then I can look at you
(Looking at me)
If I'm out on a date
I just shut my eyes
(Then I can't see)
Get away from the bar
Tell your boyfriend, "Hold your jar"
And dance with me
