Costume design.

Another costume design inspired by strictly come dancing.

I did this a bit quick hence the black line going through the leg lol!
It was inspired by the tango, but instead of  being traditionally Spanish I made it softer and used a completely different colour.
Its has a asymmetrical tied skirt, wide sheer arm straps with bead fringing and silver embroidery around the waist and edging on the skirt ,which the scanner hasn't picked up properly.

It was done using promarkers, and gel pens for the silver detail.

I'm not as happy with this as some of the others I've done. It took me a while to settle on the design  and I feel her face looks too dark as her one eye is too close to her hair.

Thanks for looking x


  1. You're a fantastic drawer! Regardless of the black line through the leg!!

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
