Satine (Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend) - Moulin Rouge!





For the same party, this time for my girlfriend, she was originally going to ask me to make Satine's red dress, but decided it would be fun, since it's the Diamonds Marilyn dress, to do the outfit from that song to 'match'.
...I still have no idea what I'M wearing to the party.

I can't wait to make it, I'm really looking forward to it and I think Jen will look awesome in it.

When did you last see her? It's short and red at the moment, but the colour is pretty exactly right, she'll just need to add a hairpiece :D

Oh the pain and agony this costume afforded. Jen's self-esteem levels took a dive at several points during the production process, which is a pity as she looked completely stunning that night.

There was a problem with the straps so in the end we just pinned it to the corset she was wearing and didn't bother with them.
I wasn't entirely happy with the fabric we ended up with but it was the best we could find in the end, and there were a few hiccups. The fringing ended up black after much heartache attempting to find, and then make, silver, and as with Elaine's gloves even though it wasn't accurate it looked ok.
I loved doing the silver patterns on the collar and the edges of the tails, that was a lot of fun and it looked quite good (though you can't see in any of the photos) - though I wish I'd made both the tails and the collar a little larger.

On the whole she looked absolutely stunning, even if accuracy was lacking in some areas XD
