Cabbage Patch Costumes

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

I have bought myself a new sewing machine and I am determined to gain some skills behind the wheel. My childhood Cabbage Patch Doll, Ronda Rinata Boyd, could do with a wardrobe of fun costumes! As I am involved with our local theatre Centre Stage, I would like to be able to help make costumes in the future too. Some days I will design the costume and collect materials needed. Other days will be make day!


Day 13 - Black Leather Boots.

Now this took some thought! I created a pattern based on looking at my boots and measuring Rondas feet. It velcros up at the back. The toe was the biggest challenge. It's was a sort of pointy oval. I measured the width and length creating a cross. Then connected that to make a pointy oval. An oval for the foot. Then the side was like a bridge shape. Sew it all together and a boot emerged! I made a pattern up!! Pants are from day 12 and poncho is from the 1970s. I made the hair tie too. She looks awesome!
