I can tell you now, a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into those costumes as I designed the concept of them, drawing them up and then tried to figure out how to make them, as I don't know how to sew.
So I turned to the one person who had the skills to make this for me in the short amount of time we had, in the budgetary constraints we faced.
My gorgeous wife.
Of course if she or I had known exactly what would be involved, she would have divorced me right then and there. But we needed these outfits, I needed them to seperate the gangster's girls from other 'molls' onscreen. These were their statement outfits.
And so it began...
38 meters of fabric
Cut into patches
2592 patches used
300 meters of thread to stitch them together
Broke 11 needles on the sewing machine...
My wife will no longer sew anything for me ever again...but I think it might have been worth it
