Me as Elizabeth 1st for our fancy dress Christmas do at work :-)
I created the costume from a skirt, jacket, shirt and waistcoat I bought 2nd hand. The main changes were to cut the jacket sleeves and sew on lots of different trims and bits of lace.
The ruff was made by sewing handfuls of paper doilies onto the shirt collar.
The crown is made of cardboard painted gold with some stick on jewels and a heart shaped pearl christmas tree decoration stuck on with tape.
Next week is my last week at work, after Christmas I'll be working full time as an artist!
Wish me luck!! :-)
