I’ve just finished a charming commission: costumes for a piece of musical theatre called Home: Weaving Scottish Songs into a New Zealand War
The show tells the story of two Scottish immigrants, Maggie and Johnnie, over the course of World War I, through traditional Scottish folk songs.
And best of all, for me, they wanted reasonably historically accurate costumes!
Here is a sneak peek at Maggie’s costume:

I’ll post about the costume in detail in a few days. And show you Johnnies costume!
