Port Au Prince, ...
I made this costume for a Masquerade party last month. It is definitely Marie-Antoinette inspired (in fact I was watching Sofia Coppola’s movie while sewing).
The pattern was drafted by me, starting from a basic block, removing ease. The “peplum” is quarter circles on each side.
The trims were all purchased here in NYC (Dakota Trimmings and Pacific Trimmings), superposing (handsewing) several trims allows a more elaborate effect.
You can’t see the back but it’s laced with eyelets and ribbon.
Boning are inserted in the lining (4 in the front and 4 in the back).
Overall it was a very fun costume to wear even though at the end of the night I could not wait to get out of it (i could not raise my arms very high…).
