Making gold lace:

Build1Mvc-005f.jpg gold Mylar Xmas tinsel

Build1Mvc-003f.jpg The net is taped to a paper pattern of the design and then Mylar is stitched with big stitches through the net, making an oversize gold lace pattern that "reads" onstage.

Build1Mvc-010f.jpg The extra net is clipped away from the bottom edge, making a gold "lace" elbow ruffle.

Valmont's vest is made from an Indian skirt from Value Village. Lorraine cuts the vest of muslin, then applies sections of the embroidered pattern to the muslin so that it looks like it was embroidered in a single piece.

Build5Mvc-018f.jpgThe top 6" of the skirt has no quilt batting between the layers so that there will not be too much bulk at the waist.

Build7Mvc-005f.jpg The waistband has the skirt cartridge pleated to the sides and back (flat in front) to deal with the bulk of the fabric (two layers of muslin & one of silk, folded over).

Valmont's coat is made of a sari.

Build6Mvc-013f.jpg The edge is cut off from the sari, the coat made from the middle pieces, and then the edge is reapplied in a curve with small tucks on the inside edge to make the pattern flow as if it were embroidered in a curve.

Build6Mvc-015f.jpg Edge pieces are also used to make the collar, cuffs and pocket flaps.
