The design pulls in two elements of the parade, the dancer’s face masks & the fanned skirts that accentuate movement

I enlarged initial sketches to act as a paper template and built my structure

I am building a front and back and attaching the two pieces into a wedge

I paper using triangles of wet strength. It means there’s a bit of overlapping but much easier to shape & easily tuck behind each piece of willow
