Well, after holding on to the last of a few costumes for way too long, I decided it was time to donate them to the theater. I had them in my closet, then I moved them to a tote, then I moved them to another closet. I just can’t seem to part with some costumes as easily as others…. it’s time they get used again. I had 4 of this style.
These little outfits looked fabulous on stage – not period correct, but fabulous none the less. The corsets lace up the front and have 2 sets of lacing for the back. I had 6 of this style.
This was the hardest to let go. It was used for a production of Beauty & The Beast. The actress was so taken with how she looked, she cried, ‘Why can’t we dress like this all the time?” Alas, there was only 1 like this.
Now, I embark on a new journey, 1912. I think I’ll make a few of these fashions to fit me, then I can keep them!
