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 19 - Overalls

Using the pattern for pants I adapted it to create overalls. I added pockets too. I had to quick unpick one of them and put it back on. I figured out why my machine was being naughty now and then. It's better to start sewing not from the corner but a bit forward. Then reverse back. It's working so far anyway. Tomorrow I shall use my button hole thingy for the first time on the straps. Wish me luck!
