Designing, Sewing, and Making Costumes

Costume Design Photo Pages 1 - 2 - 3




Always use a four-way stretch fabric when sewing dance or gymnatics costumes.

This costume was designed by me.  I sent my drawings with my colors to a very talented lady in Canada and she altered them and made this beautiful Rhythmic Gymnastics costume for Jessica.







A Costume Designers job:

When an original costume is being made, a sketch is drawn first, some times on the computer.  Then a professional costume illustrator does the finished sketch. Then ideas must be approved. The final choices of fabric and trim are made, and then the workroom gets ready to make the costume.




The vest on John was made in a matter of 3 about a time schedule.

In this photo my son, John, in the middle, and daughter, Jamie, on the right, were in their high school play, "Beauty and the Beast." Gaston is to the left of John, Lumiere, to the right, both wearing costumes that were rented.  In a couple of scenes the actors had to dress as peasant folk/town folk. With only minutes to spare, (one of the times the kids tell me just before dress rehearsal that I needed to make some costumes) I whipped up John's vest in a matter of 3 minutes.  I didn't line it, nor did I add buttons. I just cut it out, sewed the side seams, sewed the shoulder seams, and zigzagged around the edges so it wouldn't fray to bad.  Jamie made her peasant blouse she is wearing, and I whipped up her apron.  The great thing about sewing costumes for theatre, especially if it is for a peasant or poor looking actors, your sewing doesn't have to be perfect.
