You will need
To make a pirate costume so beloved by boys, you need very little: an old vest, tight pants (breeches), a headband, scraps and paints. If the men in your family do not have such a memory of youth, then you can buy a children's knitted vest at the clothing market. The main thing is to remember that for a costume you will need it several sizes larger than the real one.
For highly organized and meticulous mothers, it may take several days to get a suit, while for less organized, but capable of mobilization, a maximum of one night.
Description of work
The key element in a pirate costume is a vest, it is on it that your design efforts will be focused. The main point of these efforts is to spoil the jersey in a highly artistic way. There are several ways to do this: first, in some places, stain the vest with black and brown paint. You can use special felt-tip pens for painting on fabric. Then, with coarse stitches, sew patches of uneven shape. If the vest is not very dear to you, it can be torn a little for greater persuasiveness. This splendor is girded with a sash, for which the pirate will plug his weapon. And if you spend a little time, there is a chance to buy a toy bandolier belt that fits the costume perfectly. The image will be completed by a headband (the easiest way to make it is from a scarf-bandana with a frightening pattern) and the corresponding makeup. It is better to paint the face of your beloved child with an eyebrow pencil and shadows.
You will need
From ready-made items - ordinary children's shorts and Czechs, as well as many, many shiny sewing accessories, an organza cut and gold brocade.
Creating an oriental princess costume is an extremely creative and time-consuming process. If you decide to seriously approach its manufacture, then it can take a whole month. The costume is sewn strictly according to the figure, it must be constantly tried on, and to make it really beautiful, you will need to spend a lot of time on hand sewing.
Description of work
First you need to make two basic items - bloomers and a bodice. For bloomers, children's underpants are taken and sheathed with brocade. This is done so that the base of the trousers is dense enough and so as not to waste time on a complex pattern. Then sew on the organza legs, gathering them tightly with an elastic band at the bottom. The bodice is cut according to a simple pattern; use hooks or Velcro for fasteners. The main thing is to accurately calculate the height of the straps so that they do not fall off during the dance. Then sequins are sewn on the whole organza, and the bodice is decorated with threads on which beads are strung. When the costume itself is finished, we move on to additional details. A neck ornament is made from a thin golden braid with sewn sequins and beaded pendants. Gently covering ordinary Czech shoes with satin, you get elegant grandma shoes. With the help of a cardboard frame placed under the fabric, which is stuffed with cotton for strength, make elongated noses and decorate with a wide gold ribbon embroidered with beads.
