Earlier this month, I posted the first of the toiles I made up for our upcoming production of ‘Fallen Angels’ – an adorable little mid-30′s dress, made using a vintage pattern. Remember?
Well, since then we had an initial fitting on the actress – there were some modifications that had to be made, which wasn’t surprising. The original pattern was quite a bit smaller than the actress (not uncommon for vintage patterns), so I had to grade it up a fair amount. Today was the final fitting – and it’s going to look great on stage! All that’s left is the final hem – marked here with safety pins. The fabric is a printed silk broadcloth – buttery soft and so easy to work with. The drape of the skirt when it’s on a real person is amazing!
