Ten Dollar Bill Costume

 

To coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment (which allowed women the right to vote), the United States Treasury has announced that in 2020 they will unveil a newly designed $10 bill with a woman front and center. While many had petitioned for the $20 note as the bill of choice to be redesigned, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew clarified that it was more an issue of currency security than the politics of Andrew Jackson and Alexander Hamilton. Opening up the discussion to the public, Lew has stated that the only qualification for the woman on the bill is someone “who was a champion for our inclusive democracy.”

Elaborate dresses from movies can be wonderful sources for inspiration, but attempting one of those on a first try is as ambitious as replicating a Van Gogh without previous painting experience. Just as one needs to learn the basics of brush strokes and blending to paint, a costumer needs to learn the basic...
