Cardiff, United ...






using basic costume pattern for theatre, a robe anglaise and a corset pattern from Corsets and Crinolines. Wig dressed by me also.

Material Notes

lovely canvas with big yellow bows on it, worked out to 5p a metre (bargain!!) Other miscellaneous bits and bobs of rags in various greens and yellows.





lots of internet research. Im not the first to rock this costume, but I was certainly the only one where I went that night!

    Aww! Thanks for that. Do they have baked beans over there? Not sure if I could cope without them.

    The marmite head made me a bit of a celebrity where I work, I think its because it is so totally bizarre!
