Costumes for the theatre

This is a recent costume I constructed for an actor playing the part of Elvis Presley in a play called Cooking with Elvis.

Lots of Bling

Another costume for the theatre.

The original fabric of the coat was perished and beyond use so I unpicked it and used the pieces as my pattern. It is made in velvet, using the original braiding from the original coat which I remade using new fabric.
A lot of the braiding was also  worn so I spent a fair while matching the embroidery threads to repair the patterning.
