Cottage Industries

I spent the last two weeks of February in a little hut, at the bottom of a garden....

 ...knee deep in brogues and baker boy hats... the company of my friends Becki and 6 Music.

 It's not a bad life!

  One of the things I love about Costume Supervising is being able to indulge my love of sorting and categorizing things. A well ordered rail is a most satisfying sight, and a costume file full of neatly filled in measurement charts and colour coded dividers will never fail to please.
My other great joy in costume is the research. I could wallow in books for hours on end, and in the past have almost resented having to start designing if it means I have to stop researching. One of the great things about designing for theatre is the sheer breadth of subjects you become, albeit fleetingly, an authority on.

The other wonderful thing about being a designer.... being surrounded by beautiful things.
