I have a client in Texas that I has given me loads of unique sewing projects to do for her family, who loves all things animated! A couple of years ago, I made Disney ornaments and Christmas Stockings! This year I am working on a costume for her little daughter . . . Mal from the Descendants movie! I have never seen the movie, but thru internet images, I have begun to recreate the jacket for my little client.
I think the original jacket was made of leather, and obviously I am not making it from leather material. It would be cost prohibitive! But, I found some taffetta's that are a nice second for a child costume! They provide that shiny surface that is needed.
I was nervous about making the costume, since I could not use my client's child for an actual fitting. But thru emails, I got her measurements and hopefully it will turn out just right!
So far . . . here's the progress . . .with one sleeve and pinned in some places:
I'll share the finished product before I ship it!
Watch for it!
