I have experience working as a costume supervisor and am excited to follow a career path in television and film. I am eager to work within a wardrobe team to learn and improve my skills to become a costume buyer. As a costume maker, I  have developed a variety of technical skills and specialise in womenswear and hand embroidery.

Riding Jacket

This jacket is the replica of a costume from the movie “Goya’s Ghost” (Director: Miloš Forman). It is representative of the  1790′ style. It is sewn in velvet with a hand embroidered silk jacket. Making this costume allowed me to further develop my sewing skills in womenswear, embroidery and soft tailoring.

Dorothea Corset

This costume is the replica of a 1580 corset made with linen and 40 boning pieces. It allowed me to experiment with scaling up patterns as well as learning about the sewing methods of that period. My research mostly came from the books “Patterns of Fashion 5” by Janet Arnold, and “The Tudor Tailor” by Ninya Mikhaia.
