Purple Batik Costume – Week 5

Purple Batik BraThis week I made the bra and arm cuffs. The bra was a little difficult as it was necessary to stitch pieces of patterned fabric together to look as if it was one continuous piece. The trim over the section where the neckties are attached also had to have a piece of fabric appliqu├ęd over the top so that it gave a nice finish to the edge.

The back of the bra was finished with some elastic encased in lycra with a bra hook and eye closure for a secure closing. The neck ties were also made in a lycra so there is a little give around the neck for comfort.

Gold Bugle Beads
The belt base is now finished but needs a little more glitz so that when on stage the light will reflect and give little sparkles here and there.

I decided a nice way of doing this would be to outline a few of the paisleys with twisted bugle beads.

Below is the layout of the paisleys I decided to outline, I didn’t want to do too many as I thought it would detract from the already lovely fabric.
