Charcoal and Cream Contemporary

This contemporary costume is a beautiful and elegant combination of charcoal lycra and cream stretch mesh with a splash of crystal AB rhinestones.


lots of lovely bling

The leotard was made up in charcoal lycra with a cream stretch mesh empire line skirt. The 2 colour bodice was heavily stoned using a combination of ss30, ss20, ss16 and ss10 crystal AB rhinestones.

I started with a central line of stones and then worked outwards making a random pattern that diffused towards the edges with the smallest stones.


deep back

This costume was adapted from one of my favourite Kwiksew pattern KS 2601 which is now  unfortunately out of print. It’s so adaptable and the deep back is beautiful.


finished costume

I do like making costumes like this that are just a little off-trend. There’s nothing like feeling a little special backstage with a costume that doesn’t look like a catalogue piece.
