Thanks so much for this. I've already been approached by a lovely burlesque dancer for work this new year and can't wait to get started! I'd got pretty far by myself, but this put me light years ahead without having to reinvent the wheel. One question: should we just sew the tassels to the center of the cone by their hanging cord? That was my thinking.
There are a couple if ways of doing this - I choose to sew by hand, but some people use a very small eyelet in the center and knot the tassel cord at the back. It changes the way they twirl, apparently :)
