With the flamingo shirtdress pretty much done and ready to wear out of the house (when it gets warmer!), it’s time to move on to my next project. This one in particularly needs to get done soon, as I am hoping to wear it to the “premiere” of our musical in March and I know I’ll soon be sewing all costumes, all the time.
I call this my “Pure Imagination” dress because our show is Willy Wonka, Jr. I had a lot of leftover purple velvet from my Wonka costume and decided to make something special for myself as it IS my 10th Anniversary of costume design.
The completed bodice shell and getting a start on the lining. It is so difficult to take pictures of this fabric – the light catches it strangely and it either washes it out or makes it so dark you can’t make out the details. This one seems to be decent.
At this point, I took a break. I was trying to accomplish a number of different things yesterday and wanted to rest up and finally recover from being sick.
