Costume rendering by designer Nikki Delhomme
Bodice and skirt constructed by Samantha Reckford.
Nikki Delhomme designed this costume for STNJ’s 2014 production of Ben Johnson’s "The Alchemist," directed and adapted by Bonnie Monte. Ensemble was draped by Caroline La Porta and distressed and painted by Nikki Delhomme.
The ensemble consists of a bodice and matching skirt, each constructed of several layers and heavily distressed. The 5-panel bodice is fully boned and grommeted, and made of corset coutil, denim, brocade and lace. The skirt consists of six layers and is made of silk dupioni. cotton gauze, net, and lace.
I stitched this ensemble while working as part of the Intern Company and the Summer Professional Training Program at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey.
