Evil doings at the christening...

Sleeping Beauty, of course. What did you expect?























The wicked fairy godmother wreaked havoc as she is supposed to,  with gorgeous purple jacket over a black tutu, and an overskirt on the tutu, as it was a bit too transparent.










And then we saw that lovely flowered fabric for her majesty, the proud Mama of Aurora. Not quite enough for a whole dress, but with a few pieces of silk to go with...

When the perfect fabric leaps off the shelf and into your hand, what can you say?




I hadn't realised to begin with that it was silk I was dealing with. The lovely slubby fabric, and the oyster coloured lower sleeves are both silk. Sadly, the main fabric for the skirts is more mundane..













 I also made the King his outfit. Well, you know how it goes. I was only making the costume for Carabosse, so we were off fabric hunting and there, on the shelf, was the perfect fabric for a frock coat for the King... Well, he was going to need to be clad, so, 'Would you?'   How could I say no?




This fabric works both ways out, predominantly black the one side and bronze the other. A bit of pretend frogging...


 And then, breathe, and smile!

Wonderful costumes, well done to you! Perfect fabrics and so beautifully made. I love making costumes and wI know it should have been my career but hey ho, life takes us on varied paths but not always where it should.
