Well my Tea Party has come and Gone, was great fun, meant to add more updates before the event but party prep and work took over and that didn’t happen but here is a look at the final outfit for the night, might add up some step by steps later once work and life quiets down again 🙂
So I’m throwing a mad hatters tea party for my Birthday this summer but as a costume maker it would be a disgrace if i showed up in something i didn’t make so time to create some Mad Hatter awesomeness XD
Making do and mending is being put on the back-burner for a while which is a shame as i was in the middle of turning a dress into a top.
Been employed to make some brand spanking new costume for a Christmas production, not allowed to upload the designs or final costumes, which is sad as some of them are really cool!
Been busy making original patterns and tulle’s to show to the employer, hopefully starting on the finals soon 🙂 And this gave me the perfect reason to add ‘Metric Pattern Cutting for Menswear’ to my ever-growing collection of pattern books :3
Found these nice light striped jeans in the clearence section for only a £10 ,bargain, loved the colour and pattern but not the wide leg cut or the un-hemmed framed bottom.
So i first edited the shaping of the trouser legs for my preferred bootleg cut. after a few trials i achived the wright look not to tight but not to baggy and sewed both legs up, trimmed of the excess and edged. then i hemmed the bottom of the trousers to give them a more finished look.
