This is it - a month and a half of work and more fittings than I care to admit to. It is done and looks great, I hope to get a picture of it in action at some point. She needed it for a competition in San Bruno this month. This is my first attempt at asymmetrical straps with a very low back.

Monkey - I accidentally deleted the photos of the headpiece so this is all I have for the moment.....
Back of the red vest with long curly tail - I couldn't make the wire straight so I weighted the tail with a heavy washer which made for some great movement when the actress was in costume.

I made this to match the Carin room at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo for her birthday. The room is decorated entirely in pink and gold and yes, that is the lower half of a cherub above her head.
The parameters were animal print and pink. I used a vintage pattern and made a few alterations to it. I added the inverted box pleat at the front, lowered the neckline and made the sleeves fuller with a slit along the sides.
