Well, I agreed to sign on for this show knowing it was right around my due date. Luckily, I got the bulk of everything done before the baby, and superstar costumer Jennie tied up the loose ends and carried the wardrobe through the week of shows. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters and designing period 30’s pieces for them and took Amanda’s dinner dress back to a tea dress of the late 1910’s/20’s which she would have stashed away from her “entertaining” days… I tried to re-style clothing as much as possible with only the pink Laura dinner dress having to be made from scratch, from my imagination, actually, as I could not find a pattern of what I was envisioning.
Laura dinner dress
Glorious Bustle Dress in a size way to tiny for anyone these days to wear. There are intricate moon and star buttons up the front, lace trim and a dagger point skirt. The top is fully boned and structured with princess seaming, articulated sleeves, and tail in the back.
