The Making of the Mococo Playsuit

These were a few photos I took during the making of the Playsuit! It was all guess work, so it took a lot of, measuring, putting it on, tapering it, getting it off, sewing it, putting it on etc etc.
To my surprise the chest piece was harder compared to the shorts, but then again, I wanted it tailored to my curves so that was the tricky bit, and the zip!!
There are few bits on it which aren't quite right but hey, that's to learn for next time! :) Overall I'm really pleased with the result!

|Mococo| Playsuit

It has taken me forever to make this Playsuit, as I didn't go by templates and made it all up. However, I now have templates for shorts which will fit me perfectly.
Have no dime? Grab yourself a curtain and make yourself some clothes!
I got this Rococo styled curtain months ago and put it to good use!
Inspired by my earlier Rococo work, I give you:

Work in Progress - Sweeney Todd Set

For the Set of Sweeney Todd back in March, the budget was awful...£50 for a whole set (?!)...So I spent most of the months I was meant to be designing, actually trying to find a set. I was pleased with the designs I managed to pull out of the bag in the end, but it wasn't how I wanted it. I have been working on the design I actually wanted below:
(It still needs adding to, colouring, lighting and more costume designs)

Loved making more headbands today <3
More to come!

Tuesday, 2 August 2011


I have been exploring my jewellery box again and wanted to make head bands for festivals. I got some splendid green feathers and other bits and bobs, and put this together!
If your at all interested in purchasing one, I'd love to hear from you. Each one will be unique and £5 each plus postage!
The dangling feather also unclips so this ensemblé becomes two different items, a necklace and a headband. Bit cheeky.

Little 'Tweaks' Here and There

The summer is great, and I've dived into my sewing and materials box and started to alter some bits and bobs that I have lying around. This is a Vintage Hat I bought a while back made by Edna Wallace. I've made it less rounded and shaped it forward with lovely bands to flatter the head shape. Looking forward to 'fall where I can rock this fluffy ensemblé.


June and July have been great fun. Joined a theatre group and helped paint and construct a set for a production called, 'Art' this month. Very simple set, but it was great to get involved with backstage and helping construct it!
Great News...they want me to design their next set. So excited.
(Thank you Sweeney!)

Second Programme this year, slowly but surely living the dream...

End of Year Exhibition

My end of year exhibition, it's been a busy year and completely flown by but I've loved it!

Tunnel Book

This was my final second year collaborative project with Meggie Wood. We created a tunnel book each using influences from the same poet.

As you open the book, the three dimensional artwork is discovered and the viewer looks through the 'peep-hole' to see the many frames of the tunnel book. In my 'Morning' book, each frame represents each stanza of the poem I picked by James Hogg. So we visually travel through the poem, with an innovative twist on an ordinary book.

It was a long and amazing journey designing the Set for Sweeney Todd. I worked with such a great team, and without them the set wouldn't have been able to come to life! Here are some images from the show! Enjoy ya'bleeders!
