My major work project for the final year of my costume course. We had $200 NZ dollars and $80 NZD of workroom stock to make our chosen garments ( i came in under the radar at 163.30 NZD and 50 NZD). I wanted to make a mid 18th century gown and did so!
These photo’s where taken in a professional photo shoot for an award winning NZ hair artist.
Taffeta, cotton voile, lace, organza ribbon, pearls, silk and gimp
