After many hours, I have sewn the last button and clipped the last thread. All the costumes are finished for Belhaven University's production of "The Importance of Being Earnest". They where packed up and shipped out to Jackson, Mississippi today. Mind you, I only did the women's costumes(See last 2 posts). I worked on 4 characters, 2 of which had 2 costumes each. 19 pieces in all, to complete all that was needed.
I am no Edith Head, but I'm very thankful for the opportunity to put my God given talents to work. I also love working on Period pieces! It was a challenge to work with only measurements and sketches supplied by the university. I would have loved to work directly with them, but trust all is well in what I did. I can't wait to see pictures of the costumes on the actors.
I'd like to thank:
my boss Kellie, for including my work on costumes & quilts on her website www.thesewingroomutica.com and for her assistance and critique
my co-worker Villa for her assistance
all those who sent me words of encouragement
especially for those of you who prayed me through this endeavor.
I can't wait to see what new door God will open for me in the future!
