The Copenhagen Collection: III

Amidst the world wide Covid 19 crisis, the shining light in the storm has been a commission from the DET NY TEATER in Copenhagen, Denmark for their upcoming stage production of Oliver!

We have been stitching furiously for the past few weeks creating the first set of costumes: Here are the lady’s garments:

This is our Camille Dress cut in the late 1820s style. The waistline is slightly elevated and the sleeves are extra full as would be the style during the 1830s. This version of our Camille dress can be described as transitional.

Our late 1820s era Camille dress is made from a delicate cream, yellow, and green stylized feather print from our reproduction fabric collection. The gathers around the neckline are created with a drawstring that is strategically tacked in place to keep the gathers from shifting. The sleeves are lined in organdy and employ sleeve puffs to created the additional fullness.

The hems are cut extra long and will be finished upon final fittings in Denmark.

The gown closes at center back with a hidden zipper rather than hook and eyes or buttons to accommodate quick costume changes.


About Susan

My interest in historical costume began at a very early age. I knew by age 5 I wanted to be a designer. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to turn my passion into a full time business. You can find my costumes onstage in NYC, on the big screen, and in museums around the globe.
