When my hubby mentioned Dame Nellie Melba, and then showed her who it was, her decision was made, so 1 Dame Nellie Melba costume was required and quickly (we only had a few days notice!).
Thanks to a very costume-making-savvy sister, and some sewing skills, we came up with this, which flowed over a floor length white satin skirt...so pretty...
The bustle was my favourite bit!
Lana was one happy (and glamourous!) chick.
