Hans and Greta

It’s my fifth week in Umeå and it’s minus degrees.

When I arrived I helped with the opera Hans and Greta by Grimm. I arrived two weeks before the premier. They didn’t have so much left to do. So I sew the trousers to the mom and helped with some finishing.

The 28 of september we went to the premier and it was really great.
I think the costumes, scenography and light does so much for a play. And so many people who is behind and working to make the opera perfect.

After Hans and Greta. My superviser showed me to do and historic corset. I chose to sew a corset from 1900 in my size. It’s a typical corset for burlesque.

Since then I learned to sew a historic blouse it was quite interesting with the pattern. It’s just squares.

At they moment I’m sewing a historic jacket from 1600.
