My project for this production was Mrs. Linde. I constructed every garment for this character except the hat and the blouse which were both pulled from stock. I got to fit the corset and then the skirt, apron, vest, and Jacket. The biggest challenge was matching the plaid on the bias down the center front and back.

In addition to my duties as Costume Shop Manager overseeing the alteration of vintage Bob Mackie gowns, I also custom made the white dinner jacket worn by Pete. The collar and pocket flaps are oyster silk and the jacket is a monochromatic satin jacquard. Construction of the jacket took three days and Mr. Naughton was thrilled to have a custom made garment.

My project for this show was the bias cut gown worn by Frosine. In addition to the construction of the gown I beaded the bodice and dyed the fringe to meet the designer's vision. Other projects for this show included distressing Harpagon's robe as seen on the Costume Crafts page.
