Stage Costume | Handmade Lace Embellished Body Suit for Courtney Love

0.01

Shown here is the original concept sketch for a stage costume created for musician Courtney Love and the completed project. The front of the bodysuit features an antique embroidered net panel, a large beaded applique and tiny handmade lace stars. Dozens of handcrafted lace motifs were created for the legs of the suit, each hand-stitched to a sheer bodystocking. An assemblage of vintage floral embroidery decorates one of the shoulders and the leg. The asymmetrical sleeve has cut outs with handmade lace motif insertions. Rows of vintage lace embellish the sides of the suit and various pieces of vintage embroidery were cut out, edged in a buttonhole stitch and appliqued onto the bodysuit. Everything was sewn and embroidered by hand.
