I have philosphy of everybody, no matter their size or shape can look good. This is something not every costumer belives in. I tell all my actors and actresses , if you give me enough time to fit you correctly I can make you look dang good, if you don't well then you take what you get. I'd say "Annie" turned out looking wonderful. I've got my polishing I wish I could do, but I think she looks fantastic on stage.

Looks great! Love your philosophy, too - I bet the actors/actresses adore you. What was the name of the show?

"Captain Phantasum and the Nefrious Dr. Noir" And yes the actors like me. Many of the larger girls and guys have not been treated well in the past. To have some one take the time to make them look good means alot. One of the guys said it was the first time some one actually made them a design, not just went in the closet and said "Here this fits you wear it." Some of the younger ones have taken the time to ask questions. When this girl "Annie" asked me what it would actually cost to make the dress if I calualted all the hours spent making it, including pattern making plus supplies. To quote my grandmother, "She nearly swollard' her dentures." Annie said she now understands why all the other costumers were so "mean" about how their stuff was treated. Yikes!
