Costume Designer: Rachel Clark
I was asked to create a five fore skirt for Mrs. Webb in our production of Our Town. I cut and measured all the pieces, and atttached the center backs/sides together. After this, I then was asked to create four tucks along the side seams/center backs of the skirt. The front panel was the only panel that did not have these tucks. After I attached the front panel (which had to fit appropiately after tucks were set), I attached the plackets to the center back seam, and placed gathers along the skirt. After this step I then attached the waist band. I followed this process twice through the muslin mockup and to the real skirt.

Costume Designer: Jill Kelly
Summer of 2016, I had the opportunity to work along side Beef And Board's Dinner Theatre's costume designer, Jill Kelly. I was a shop assistant and design assistant for her that summer, and I helped her build several dresses/ items for their fall production of Into The Woods.
Spring of 2016, I made a men's regency vest in for Septimus in Tom Stoppard's Arcadia. The vest included building two welt pockets, which I hd never done before.
