the broad inspiration

03 Dec

Funeral pyre stuff, with Tyrian purple cape.

I hope those long-ago cast members don’t mind my sharing this, which I happened to find after I’d made my current version of the costume.


Different, but definitely a close relative 🙂

If I’d allowed myself more time, I might have made something closer to this tunic style. I suspect that would also have required wider fabric. Most saliently, anything that required vast amounts of time was never going to happen. Right?! Right.

No more fancy dress nonsense now until Christmas. May your plans for that be making rather more progress than mine 🙂

    I’m in the process of making a Christmas waistcoat. Going OK.

    It’s to replace one I bought many years ago which was always a size too small and seems to have shrunk.

      I can’t believe how much things shrink! I’m considering an old skirt for office festivities… but like you, finding it seems to have shrunk! 😀

      Good luck with your waistcoat 🙂
