I thought that you might enjoy seeing a few more pictures of the dress that I created for CMU's production of The Rivals. Here are a few shots that were taken in a photo shoot on Saturday to document the dress.
A view of some of the undergarments. The undergarments were not seen on stage but were still created of beautiful silk fabrics and finished to be beautiful both inside and out so that they would aid the actress in stepping back in time to the 18th century and in getting into character as Lydia Languish. The petticoat is of white silk taffeta. She wore an additional white silk taffeta petticoat underneath, along with her pink silk taffeta bum roll and white silk satin stays (lined in pink silk taffeta!).
