I made this kimono-inspired costume for fitness model Angèle Alexander to wear to a competition. She designed it herself, and sent me a sketch to work from. The sleeves are made from silk jacquard, and lined with silk charmeuse. I applied Swarovski rhinestones to the sleeves to give them some sparkle. The body is made from bridal satin, and trimmed with hand-made satin bias tape. It zips up the back. The bottom half consists of a short “skirt” in the front, and a rhinestone-decorated waistband, which is finished in the back by a small obi. Angèle wore metallic magenta dance shorts under this costume.
