Costumes & Textiles
From 2005 – 2009 I worked as Head of Costume Design and Production for Montana’s oldest running summer repertory theater, The Virginia City Opera House. During this time my duties included: Costume design, production, fittings, tailoring and execution – Historic costume and script research – Purchasing of fabrics, notions, accessories, and stock apparel while adhering to a fixed budget – Attending and participating in daily production meetings and dress rehearsals. During a summer, it was customary to produce an average of 60 costumes during a month and a half period. By myself!
