Costume

For the Masquers Playhouse production of The Apple Tree, the costumer found a vintage summer dress in butterscotch gingham that she felt was perfect for Eve–except for its fragility, and that it fit the actress too snugly.  I took measurements of the original and made a copy in a slightly larger size.

The San Francisco Free Civic Theater production of Two Gentlemen of Verona was reset in Alta California circa 1850, and retitled Two Gentlemen of Sonoma.  I was commissioned to make a dress for Sylvia based upon a commercial pattern.
