The Fashion Show

Immediatly following the Purim season for us, we started to prepare for a fashion show for children, showcasing some of our best costumes.

Emili as Marie Antoinette

This is Emili as Marie Antoinette, one of our most popular costumes for girls. The dress is made from embroidered taffeta and embellished with cream lace and gold trim. The dress utilizes an un derskirt and it is cinched in the back for a maximum fit. I made the wig from wool; the base is  felted and I made wool curls to put all over the wig. We recieved a special request for a Napoleon Bonaparte costume, that we feel stands up to our Marie Antoinette in beauty and historical accuracy.

This is the epaulette, something many “military guys” wear when they’re dressed up; this was the most important part of the costume for Tal.

I wanted to make a knight in shining armour because I’d never seen a costume like this before made in fabric and I think the ensemble is interesting.
