'Juliet' Costume

Added Sep 15, 2009

Adelaide, Australia






This was my major work for textiles at school
It’s a costume for Juliet from Romeo & Juliet by Shakespeare
The corset and black skirt are worn under the dress.
I used McCall’s 4997 for the dress, and fitted it to the bodice which I made from the pattern I got from the NIDA corset making short course.

Material Notes

Dress – Linen/ Cotton, hand dyed pink/red then dyed the bottom purple. the Binding was put on after all the dying.
Corset – Drill Cotton, plasic immitation boning.
The underskirt was really just a quick polypop skirt that I threw together.
All the closings use eyelets and lacing.




Garment Type
Cotton, Blends, Eyelet, Linen
