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 7 - Sweet little nightie

Look what I made. No pattern! Satin type material is easy to work with. It holds iron pressing so well that you do not need pins. This nightie fastens at the back with velcro. Fits perfectly. I added little crosses on the straps. This happened by accident as I sewed the bottom of the strap but it was gaping a bit. So I matched the cotton cross with the dressing gown material I'm using tomorrow. Lots of fun!
