Confession time: I don’t get to just dream up and make costumes every day; I have a day job. I am a lawyer and have been practicing law for about 25 years. We have a group in my law firm for women attorneys. I planned an outing to go see the new documentary on Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. She really was a brilliant lawyer and did a lot of work on women’s civil rights, so perfect for a group of female lawyers. We planned a couple of different showtimes to attend to accommodate schedules. I decided to do a bit of costuming for the show I went to. I took scraps of lace and leftover lace from projects and made lace collars/jabots/ascots – whatever you want to call them so we could pay homage to RBG. I just pleated lace pieces and attached them to ribbons to tie around our necks. Really simple and easy and not really that well constructed. But they were a great hit – and made a fun outing even more fun. Just goes to show, a little costuming can brighten any day.
