Morticia Addams. This suit is one of the main reinforcements of why I don't like to design in black. This is the most complicated jacket that I have ever drafted. It has three collars going all different directions, one and a half peplums, tiny pinstripes angled every which way, and hard-to-make sharp-cornered seams. And you can barely see any of the work! The unfortunate outcome is that Tish looks like a dominatrix 50's airline stewardess.
Carolyn and Angelica versions, put the actresses in dresses so tight at the knees they could barely walk. Making a fishtail gown, though, would be too obvious, so I started by making very tight pants with huge flares at the bottom with a corset at the top. Then I realized that flared pants are SO not in style anymore, so I scrapped it and started over by making an uncomfortably tight jacket with padded shoulders and a strange, spider-like collar treatment with an attached choker that makes her decollete' look like a heart.
So this was a good excercise, but soon will be put into the phail file! I should have taken a picture of what a mess my sewing room was after all this. Black fabric trimmings all over the place makes it look really creepy!
