Hi Terry,

You’d mentioned in the Q&A that you have staff that create the patterns for the costumes. I’m curious because I know of local theatre costume shop that makes their mock-ups in muslin first before ever cutting into the actual fabric.

~Are the patterns done in cloth and sewn together as mock-ups to see if they’ll fit the actors or their dress form first?

You’ve also mentioned using using old techniques in making the wedding dress that haven’t been used in a while.

~Are all the costumes made on modern machines? Or has the staff found that some older machines or sewing tools work for the period styles that you need to achieve?
