I was asked to make a “lost Boy” costume for a dancer that wasn’t too pretty but not too boyish and deep earthy colours.
I’ve used stretch mesh spiral ruffles in khaki, black, olive green and rust for the skirt.
The same ruffles were used on one shoulder. The brown trim has been brightened up with green stones.
I decorated the mesh cuffs with the same trim.
When I bought this trim I was a bit disappointed with the colour so I stashed it away for the perfect project. It has come into its own in this costume.
The olive green bodice was a perfect canvas for this costume. This has been a favourite this season.
