Elhoffer Design Is Making Dresses Inspired By The ‘Hamilton’ Musical


Catherine Elhoffer is a huge fan of Hamilton so, naturally, the musical has become the inspiration for some of her new designs.

In this case, she’s started a #Hamilgown project. Judging by how quickly all of this has progressed, I think she’s definitely feeling all sorts of inspired. I can’t wait to see these dresses on models.

So many people have been asking, and here it is. I'm nearly complete with the first of my multi-piece #hamilton inspired collection: A.Ham himself. I want to invoke the spirit of the colonial fashion and the amazing jackets and gowns, but out of modern fabrics and in my more signature dress style. This one is an emerald techno knit with a mint double scuba underskirt. I've still got to stitch down the fabric-covered buttons and the pocket flaps above the side seam pockets. And I realized, after making it, the changes I'm going to apply to the remaining pieces, including facing around the collars for a cleaner finish and some multi-function pieces. Sometimes the only way to innovate is to just start the project and learn as you go 😉 These pieces are not available yet. I'm going to complete the collection in my studio and figure out some details before I take any commissions on it. And, because I want to just dive into these pieces and put aside commissions, I'm going to alternate. One new #ham dress after a commission is completed. Gotta keep my eye on the prize 😉 #sewing #hamiltonmusical #theaterkid #inspired #geekfashion #geekbound #inprogress #alexanderhamilton #green #werk #nonstop
