So whilst I'm on a roll here are the rest of the shots of the completed Self Directed Project aka' learning to make the pretties'.
There are infact a few petals still pinned rather than sewn down to the costume, and once again, stuck with a camera/backdrop/ lack of decent lighting that does not show the costume off to its full potential.
Even so, I have taken quite a few shots from different angles as well as taking some snaps of my decoration and sleeve samples.
Just a few photos!
I cant wait to get on and make up another bodice(draft a whole new pattern) and make some variations using different materials and shapes for the skirt.
My first challenge will be something like the wood nymph-y costumes seen here in a version of Sleeping Beauty. I just love them and any excuse to work in green.
