Costume Making

I made a 1960s Coat and Dress 

 I then replicated the costume, drafting a smaller pattern to fit a doll that I had made. The challenge of ensuring the weight of the fabric and the pattern was in scale to the doll was a challenge that I learnt from and now always consider when making costumes for puppets!

Inspired by the vintage holiday posters from my seaside hometown, I created a 1950s swimsuit.
