Just closed the last show I did costumes for. The Eco-Fashion exhibit I posted about earlier inspired me to show some of the costumes since they are all thrifted but two.
I also did a few refashions when I couldn't find exactly what I wanted. Here are photos of those:
This apron is my favorite of the refashions. I have made so many vintage style aprons I can't even count them anymore. This photo doesn't do it justice because of the lighting. It's actually a beautiful light aqua rayon. I made it from a baggy dress from the '90s. This is Barbara Tarbuck, by the way, from "General Hospital". Isn't she adorable?
There was another dress this character wore but apparently we don't have a picture of it. It had to look frumpy and also hide the school uniform underneath for a fast change. I made it from a maternity dress, cut the sleeves off to a jumper and velcroed the shoulders to make the change faster. Also added a couple of big black buttons to the front. The dress was a gray and black kind of herringbone knit.
Playclothes vintage store in Burbank. It's from the '70s which is roughly when this play takes place. (The timeframe is vague because of the fable-like quality of the story and because it's set in a small town in Ireland which time has somewhat forgotten) The actor wearing the jacket is the lovely and talented Harry Hamlin.
