She Loves Me

For my final year design project, I chose the text She Loves Me by Bock, Masteroff, and Harnick, and set the musical in 1937 Vienna. The finished look was an evening gown for the character Amalia Balast, for the scene where she goes on a blind date to a romantic café. The dress was made in a medium weight viscose crepe, with a gathered skirt falling from a curved yoke at the waist. The bodice is gathered at the bust points, as are the sleeve shoulders, and the sleeves are cuffed with frills. The dress closes at the centre back with a row of covered buttons and loops, and the dress is accessorised with an embroidered belt. The purse was made with the same fabric and embroidery, and the hat was decorated with silk flowers in a matching colour.
