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 29 - Belly Dancing Pants

The material I have is dictating the costumes I create. This piece of material came off the back of a chair at Mands wedding. It was a looooong piece. I wore it around calling it my char. I have never used it since. Now it's inspiring my sewing! The waist band is created by using elastic thread on the bobbin. I love this technique to create bands. I used it around the ankles too. Thanks to Jo Bixley for telling me how to do this.
