Today I’ve been playing around with a pattern for the top layer. First images are the (for now) finished petticoat and then a box pleated version of the skirt and the final images are knife pleated gores. 
Tomorrow I’ll have a go with some horsehair braid in the hem.

After a very elaborate and complicated first costume, this is my second choice. We are making costumes from the opera Der Rosenkavelier designed by Erté. I have chosen Faninal’s seamstress, which gives me an opportunity to focus much more on the construction and shape of the costume. We will start back on January 7th. At the same time I will keep on working on my first project.

What a horrible weather, but I went on a costume hunt anyway. It’s so amazing to see them up close. 
Some amazing costumes from @disneythenutcracker  designed by @jennybeavan in Wardour Street and two sets of Mary & Jack costumes @harveynichols designed by @thesandypowell 
The ‘painted’ costumes were definitely one of my favourites from the film. 
Go check them out whilst they are there!

This is how I am making the buttons for the waistcoat. 
Since the fabric frays very quick, I first Fray Check the edge of the fabric.

I couldn’t resist making one of these up. It’s about 15mm in size. These will go onto the waistcoat.

An update with some things I’ve done over the last week. Finished one panel of the waistcoat, stitched the collar, hand embroidered French knots onto the waistcoat buttons and tried out the process of making Dorset cartwheel buttons for the linen shirt.

Absolutely shattered after weeks of 12 hours days at uni and more work at home, but very happy with how this fitting turned out. Still tons of work to do but it’s finally taking shape. Next week I will embroider the waistcoat fabric that will be mounted on top of the wool. Got about 50 buttons to make and about 1000 French knots to do over the whole costume. Nearly done ;-) The shoes will get new buckles as well. 
The wonderful @petesjams was very happy wearing it. You’re the best!

Besides the tiny error on the top of the pocket line, which I’ll fix by hand, I am so super happy with how the pocket has turned out. 
I’ve added the French knots into the flap before stitching it in place. 
Now I’ve just got to repeat the same tomorrow!

So much done already!
Photo 1 & 4: 2/3 of the second back panel is done. So tomorrow I will start on the front. 
Photo 2: Beautiful lace came in so I can finish the shirt as well. photo 3: Collar and cuffs. Usually the collar was done in one go and then often a centre back seam was needed to make the collar fit. 
Photo 5: Breeches knee bands, very first official embroidery I did. 
Also cut out everything and prepped most for sewing but still loads to do. Give me more time in a day please!

Last day of #fallforcostume, Halloween, yesterday was the #wicked15 anniversary of @wicked_musical and it’s Wicked Day. So my “All Hallow’s Eve” choice has to be my second act Elphaba costume. It took about 5 weeks to make (another week for the hat and broom). Loads of dying, beading, quilting and ruffling went into this. Super happy with the outcome.

For the “Spooky” theme of #fallforcostume I am going with this Morticia Addams dress I made for the @wlostheatre production of The Addams Family Musical back in 2015. Based on the 1991 film, with adjustments to suit the show, such as a zipper on the side for the big reveal in the Tango. 
I dyed the lurex poly fabric with @jacquardproducts iDye poly. As black can disappear on a dark stage, I went with a purple/crimson colour which often seemed black anyway. I also added beading around the sleeves for extra glamour, as Morticia is a glamorous woman in my eyes.

Finally found a beautiful wool to go with the waistcoat at @crescent_trading_london_ltd. It will be used to make a full waistcoat and then the embroidered panels go on top of it in the front. This weave/fabric might not be completely historically accurate but that is not my aim for this costume anyway. I wanted a similar texture and feel for it. 
Also bought some lovely linen/cotton mix for the interlining and pockets of the coat and waistcoat. 
Now back to making the embroidery files!

Today’s #fallforcostume theme is SPARKLES!  And boy do I love a bit of sparkle. 
There are about 850 sparkling @preciosacomponents crystals on the tutu I made at the end of last year, designed by @elsa.rose.anderson, all glued on individually. 
The video shows my crystallised @Nike shoes that I made for Pride this year.
