OVERWORKED BIT OF NONSENSE OR A THING OF BEAUTY?
Ok so I promised to show you some more of the costume work I do as the day job.
Take a stunning piece of fabric and make a Victorian idea of what an 17th C corset should look like. 


Take and equally or possibly more stunning piece of fabric to make the stomacher from.
Then cover the afore said stomacher with so much Vintage braid and cut up bits of bullion braid from a sari that the original fabric is more or less an irrelevance.
Eventually the whole shebang will be covered up with a bolero with so much braid on it that this little lot will look tame.
Is it an over worked bit of nonsense or a thing of beauty?
I work on this particular show every year and I have never been able to decide.
But the finished ensemble does look amazing.
When its done I'll show you.
Love Nora xxx
