"Suit of Lights"
Design by Marcia Cash
Marcia Cash "Traverler in Tyme", famous for her historical and era
costumes, has designed the perfect companion pattern to compliment
my Spanish/Southwest theme set of patterns for Gene Marshall.
Released in 2002, the set can be viewed on the pattern page for Gene.
The Spanish Matador costume includes a collared dress shirt with long
sleeves to be made of white cotton batiste or similar fabric. The tie is
traditionally black and is tucked inside the vest portion of the one-piece
very fitted cotton-knit or spandex jumpsuit with attached pale pink stockings.
The "Suit of Lights" jacket can be made of any fabric, but is traditionally
made of velvet or brocade and is generously embellished
with gold or silver lace motifs or braid. The traditional 'bullfighters' hat can
be made of black wool, velvet, or felt and should be lined in red satin
or taffeta. Two capes are included to complete the authenticity of the
costume. The first cape is the fashion cape which hangs in folds from the
shoulder and is made of the same fabrics and lining as the jacket. The
second cape is the Matadors 'Fighting Cape' and is made of any thin
flowing silky fabric. In a real bullfight, the fighting cape would lay over the
bullfighters sword, but for this costume we suggest you use a thin
16" TRENT OSBORNE
