If you’re obsessed with the musical Hamilton, know that you’re in the company of many fine individuals. The musical about founding father Alexander Hamilton penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda took home 11 Tony Awards at the 2016 ceremonies. It’s inspiring creators across the spectrum, including cosplayers. The costumes worn in the musical obviously have 18th century fashion connections, and the seamstress behind Jewel Creates is working on re-creating the look of the Schuyler Sisters — Angelica, Peggy, and Eliza.
As you can see from the above photo, their gowns are complex. But, the foundation layers are all the same; the only difference is the color of the fabric. Jewel Creates goes over the fabric necessary for the costumes, the corset and stays how-to, and more. She’s still working on the dresses, but she’s documenting the build in a series of Schuyler Sisters posts.
