👵🏻 HI SISTERS! TODAY WE HAVE A HAPPY CASE. WHEN A GRANNY PROMOTES AN ARTIST
When I was 13 I decided I wanted to be a fashion designer (my parents disputed, and wanted me to go into Science). So my grandmother gifted me a booklet of notes from a tailoring class she had done in the 60s, a book, and an expandable mannequin. Thanks to Grannie, 27 years later, I’m a New York based Costume designer!
Black & white pictures of vintage lingerie. From “Everyday fashions of the thirties” as pictured in Sears catalog (Dover)
Most of the fabrics that I use for tap pants and camisoles (a.k.a. kinickers) are left over gems from New York theatre shows. Either:
- there wasn’t enough for an entire costume and so it was gifted to the costume shop employees
- or I was designing a show and had tiny pieces of fabric that were too small for anything but knickers.
I choose to pass on the savings…
