This is the next thing for my lovely client Cécile Mimieux,

there is still lots more to do on it, but I have to have a fitting before I can finish this.

the collar will be decorated with more pearls, and I will be making a head piece called a french hood to match the dress.

To see more of this come and follow my blog and as I get further there will be more shown. :)

I am a wardrobe assistant at a local Ballet Company, and make costumes for burlesque and cabaret performers after hours. My blog is a construction and progress diary of some of the after hours projects, and every now and then there is some other fun bits and pieces about my hobbies.
