I was commisioned to design a costume using the 'Water for Elephants' film as inspiration.
After some fabric and bead samples, we came up with the below.
I love the draping straps, which actually also hide some really firm straps to keep this backless bodysuit close and secure.
It has a modesty sash, to ensure freedom of movement without being self conscious, and of course lots of pearls beads - I wanted to keep them hemming close to the era to give it a 1920's feel. There are also a few AB crystals, which can't be seen to easily at a glance, but will catch the light nicely as the client moves around.
This was a really lovely little project to do. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
