evelyn's mummy Inspired Costume
My customer was looking for a costume inspired by Evelyn's Librarian Costume from 1999 movie "The Mummy". This was a fun style of costume for me to sew. I don't usually get commissions for more modern garments and the vintage style fabrics allowed for lots of details to show in the design. I really wanted to go with fabrics and textiles that captured the look and feel of the original costume while still maintaining a feminine approach. (The striped pattern on the shirt shows up much better in real life. My camera was having a hard time with the contrasting colors) The costume includes a silk chiffon scarf, striped shirt with vintage style buttons and a khaki skirt.
