Description

Tie-back tunic with cutout sleeves. Fortuny pleated palazzo pants.
This was for a local production of “Clue!” – for the character of Mrs. Peacock. The actress had some areas she wanted to “hide” (heavy arms and derriere) – and needed to be able to dance, so a flowy tunic and palazzo pants filled the bill.
Unfortunately the stage pictures didn’t turn out, so the only ones I have were backstage. Too bad, since the front is a nice gathered effect that created a nice waistline.
This was a last minute “whip-up”, since the original costume arrived late, and didn’t fit at all – so it’s not as finished as I would have liked. I was so lucky, though, to find the fabrics and colors that I did, on such short notice. All peacock colors!

Material Notes

beaded poly-satin, sequined/embroidered sheer poly, fortuny pleat sheer poly with poly lining, eyelash fringe and beaded trim.

OK – this site take a little getting used to. I typed the patterns I used before, but they keep NOT saving! So, I used elements of the Maddy and Ellinore, with lots of changes and extra fabric to make it ‘flowy’.
