so, I've gotten it into my head that I want to make an alice in wonderland costume for some specific occasions,
So, my question to you is this- how would I go about making a dress that is easily recognized as alice in wonderland, but is rather untraditional?
I'd love to do something with some ornate finishing details, maybe add some pearls or rhinestones in somehow somewhere (but where and how?)
I was thinking a nice little vintage/rockabilly take on it, maybe something with a pencil skirt and halter top with an apron.. a nice halter top, kind of like that leopard dress of gwen stefani's. I'm a bit of a curvy girl, too.. something that looked somewhat flattering would be nice..
any suggestions, pictures, well wishes, etc are appreciated.
I'm working on applying for an internship with the Oregon Shakespeare festival. They have openings in their costume shop, but they want to see a portfolio. I don't have a formal portfolio put together yet, but because of this _awesome_ opportunity, I'm working on getting one together.
So, what I was wondering is..
What sorts of things need to go in there? I realize that sketches and pictures of finished pieces need to go in there, but is there anything in specific that I should make a point of including? do you think that adding historical pieces would be a wise idea? Should I include detail shots?
I wanted to make a christmas present for a 4 month old girl in the shape of a little jacket.. I've got some nice fabric and everything all picked out, but since she lives about 2000 miles away, I can't exactly measure her right now.
When christmas rolls around she'll be about 4 1/2 months old, and I was wondering if anyone happen to know approximate measurements for a kid about that age/have a little one they could measure?
I just need the normal jacket measurements-- arm length, shoulder to waist length, and shoulder length.
Thank you SOOO much. any and all help is appreciated.
I'm going crazy-- I'd LOVE to get my hands on some fabric that has really WIDE black and white stripes-- not pinstripes! All I can find is duck cloth, and I was hoping to find something that'd be more suitable for a dress.
