Dressing Up: Costume!

Manager: genessa
Untitled document

Find in this ring costume rental stores, clothing shops, theatrical costumers and fashion history sites:  all things sartorial.  Pictured, clockwise from top left:  Deborah Kerr in "Black Narcissus," Elizabeth Taylor in "Cleopatra," Gene Autry in "The Black Rider" and Sarah Bernhardt as Hamlet in "Hamlet":  all dressed a little differently than you'd find them on the street.  On the NavBar:  Eva Gauthier in a Javanese headdress.

Transfering your graphic to a costume. - 07/13/2013

This graphic was created specifically for a medieval surcote . The most sensible method of adding this design to my dress was applique. Using applique meant that I had to think about how to copy the design on to the fabric and attach the applique to the dress. This is easier now than it was in historical times. We have the advantage of Vilene Vsliesofix or Wonder Under. Both of these products are a double sided fusible paper backed webbing. I simply copied the shield design on to the Wonder Under's paper side and then ironed it on to the reverse of of my applique fabric. Using a small rotary cutter, ruler and a cutting mat I carefully cut around the design elements.  You will have to repeat this step for each colour you wish to use in your applique project.  Next, test position your pieces on the flat pieces of the garment. I did not sew up the centre front, centre back and shoulder seams on the garment to make it easier to applique the motifs. Once you are happy with the placement pin in place with glass head pins.  Then remove some of the paper backing and iron on to your dress with an applique mat and a hot iron. Carefully remove the pin and the rest of the paper backing of the Wonder Under from your motif then finish pressing.  Repeat this...
