Well I haven't posted anything in ages and thought I might try catch up with all the things I've made. I did a foundation in costume making and this was my final piece, its about collecting and keeping memories with you. The audience are meant to be able to go up to it and open the doors and look in side, each one give you a different view of the stuff inside!

Here are a bunch of views of the inside, the white tape you can see is covering the crinoline steel:







And here with someone wearing it:


And the full length view:



The binding on the bodice is all done with old maps, and the inside was made in individual panels of maps, photos, postcards etc to fit the gaps between the crinoline steels, padded and quilted to backing fabric then handsewn on. There are also objects hanging down that I collected.

Anyway, sorry that was mammoth and hope you like it!
