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 4 - Butterfly dress and necklace

Well I made a Butterfly skirt and necklace. Looks easy but it had a tricky band. Lucky Kat put me right and I put the elastic in after. The skirt is a circle. The waste is 33cm. So you just divide that by pi to get the diameter and half it to get the radius. Bobs your uncle. A skirt! Now off to celebrate my sisters birthday!!!!
