So it's finally finished after a couple months of stress!
our second projects brined was called ordinary lives, we had to create a costume for a real person from a particular pariod of time. I chose to recreate a 1950s Horrickses Dress and decided to try my hand a screen printing. It took bloody ages! after i had printed all my rose motifs. I had to draw round each design individually using a fabric pen, to add the shading and theres 5 meters of fabric in the skirt alone!!! But it's finally finished with only 5 weeks to finish my last costume (note to self keep calm and carry on) Once again i used my favourite model Rosie Cunningham to take some photographs at Southend seafront here are the results
Here are some examples of original Horrickses dresses at an exhibition in London held a few months ago.
