Here we are at the end of week 20 and I have fallen behind in my posting.
That being said, we were still working on the Naval uniform which is the actual costume that will be worn in the show. The actor has a stand in uniform that will do for pre-views until we can sub in the new one.
Here it is in process.
I don't think I got a final photo of this one, so I will have it sent back next week to do so. I was trying to take some pictures of the patterns as well, so in the fall I may have a bit of a pattern show and tell.
I have also started on one of my next shows which is set in the mid 1600's, and here is my table in week 20.
I confess I feel a bit battered by bouncing back and forth between the centuries sometimes.
I had the 19 century going on with the Naval coat, still doing fittings and notes on the 18th century show, plus I have a modern mid 20th century suit to make and now the mid 17th century plus an Elizabethan show to start next week.
Enough for now, it has been an intense few months of work and a few more months are coming before I will be taking a well deserved break- of course that means I will be unemployed!
such is the life I lead.
Take care, and enjoy your days off when you get them.
It would definitely be hard to keep switching centuries. At least you're keeping all the costumes straight. I'm helping with the costume crew of my school's theater program, and we're having to commission the costumes we need. Hopefully it will pay off when the students look more professional. http://adriano.com.auReplyDelete
