A project for my school’s production of “The Roaring Girl” (http://www.toiwhakaari.ac.nz/the-roaring-girl/) in which we were given two costumes to construct. I was given Mistress Gallipot and Neatfoot. Unfortunately I don’t really do the costumes justice – I will be adding photos of them being worn by their rightful actors as soon as I get my hands on them. :) (Hopefully I’ll also get pictures of all the underlayers also).
Neatfoot consists of –
padded pumpkin-bum breeches with button up fly and cords to tie to the doublet
padded doublet with domes, buttons, the eyelets through which the cords are threaded, a collar-stand and fake shirt sleeves handsewn in
and a handmade ruff
quilting, drill, corduroy, cotton blends, poly blends, the airconditioning stuff for the ruff..
Go far afield in this collection of bib dresses, waistcoats, and wool jackets in textured fall fabri
