Hello there -

Thanks for all the kind words!    And thanks for including me in the Best of 2010 Clothing Projects
  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368429.msg4330133#msg4330133

A local photographer contacted me and included my costume in a photoshoot last month.  I think they turned out beautifully!!

2  Deck of Cards Pillbox Hats - Millinery in Costumes: Completed Projects by LaPetiteMenagerie on: November 22, 2010 05:07:54 PM
Hi there! I've been making hats for some time now.   I'd love to share!  

I built them using buckram and wire, and a sewing maching, glue, and lots of hand sewing.  


I love how they turned out and I think they would be equally cute for a burlesque performer or bridesmaids in Vegas!

Model - Kitty Kosmo
Photographer - Luminous Lizzy
Hair & MUA - Sarah Rochelle
Corset - Sweet Carousel
Hats - Shelby Robertson for Topsy Turvy Design

For more pictures of my stuff please check out my blog at lapetitemenagerie.blogspot.com.

Thanks for all the love, everyone!  I somehow managed to escape Burning Man without a photo of me in this costume, but I'm hoping to get it photographed within the next couple weeks.  Only the hat shows signs of wear - but that's what I get for taking velvet to the desert.
To answer, I did not use a commercial pattern. 
Also, for your viewing pleasure...

5  Cigarette Girl Costume - Burning Man! IMG HEAVY in Costumes: Completed Projects by LaPetiteMenagerie on: August 22, 2010 10:40:58 AM
Hi there -
I built myself a cigarette girl costume this year for wearing out on the Playa.  I'm fully aware that it's going to get wrecked out there, but I don't want to put all the time into making this as not wear it!! I'll try and post some "after" photos in a couple weeks!  Anyone else preparing for the burn??

So there's a steel boned corset, pumpkin bloomers, skirt, gloves, feather bustle, and the hat which I built with buckrum and wire.  Not pictured is my tray, which will carry all my gifts to the masses.  Ice cream at Burning Man? Yes Please!

Check out my blog for more photos
