Finished costume

The deadline was fast approaching!  This garment must be ready for the dress rehearsal, no more time for photography of each step along the way!

A black satin underskirt and a borrowed, white chemise complete the costume.

The back of the billowing coat has been reduced to conform to the shape of our actress.

The hem has been raised in the front only; to prevent trips on stage yet leave a little bit of a train in back.

And here she is.....

along with two handsome gents who were also clothed with my help.


  1. This is BEAUTIFUL mom! You better be careful who you share this with or you'll get drafted into your local theater production company!!

    Love you :)

  2. What an amazing transformation! Thanks for sharing the journey.
