The Snow Maiden is one of the favorite characters forgirls. For sure, almost every little one dreams of appearing on New Year's holiday in the costume of Santa Claus's granddaughter. And we will help our master class to sew such a costume with our own hands. Carnival costumes for children: "Snow Maiden" Your baby has expressed a desire to go to the New Yearmatinee as a Snow Maiden, and there is no opportunity to buy her a suit? Do not worry, having spent very little time, you can please the girl with such a suit. To create a Snow Maiden costume you will need:
- a beautiful cloth of blue color, preferably satin, well sits flannel.
- white fur for the edge.
- blue fleece for boots.
- silver finish and cardboard for kokoshnika.
- beads, beads, bugles, snowflakes, applique for decoration.
In addition, white threads, scissors, an overlock, a sewing machine, pattern paper, a centimeter and a ruler are needed for work. Cutting and sewing dresses To yourselfDraw a pattern, you will need some parameters. Measure the child and determine the length and width of the dress and sleeves. Necessarily need to measure the length of the product, usually the Snow Maiden's coat is sewn below the knees. Then draw on the fabric folded in half,pattern in full size. Beginners can be advised to use when preparing a pattern a ready-made item - a dress, a jacket or a shirt, by modifying the dress and sleeve shape. To build a pattern, mark half the width of the chest, waist, and the part extends downward along the type of the trapezoid. Drawing a pattern on paper, transfer it to the fabric and cut with allowances on the seams (1.5-2 cm). This will be the back, so the neckline is minimal. We proceed to cut the front. The pattern will be similar, but with the following changes: in the middle the fabric is cut, hereinafter we make a lock, make a cut for the coquette and the throat will be cut with a large cutout. White fur cut into strips of the same width, but try to take into account the direction of the fur, so that the nap was in one direction, otherwise the suit will be ugly. After cutting, start sewing a dress - firstthe backrest and shelves are carefully sewn together with a design and try on the future Snegurka. Then sew a temporary seam of a sleeve and a shirt-front and try on a small model. The costume must be free, so fit it to the desired size. We are committed to the stitching of all stitches. Inner seams are treated with an overlock, sew a zipper. Then, along the hem, the shelves, the hem of the sleeves, the edge of the shirt-front and the collar, you need to sew a white fur. The dress is ready, it can be postponed until the final finish. The sleeves are gently swept with fur. Cutting and sewing sapozhek We will sew boots from blue fleece. First, we cut out the sole - for this we simply trace the child's leg and add 1 cm from all edges. Then we cut out the nose part of the boots and two rectangles for the bootlegs, measure the height on the foot of the child, the boots are designed for one third of the shin in height. We transfer the pattern to the fabric, the second boot is mirrored! Similarly, we cut out a second layer of soft fabric, so that our slippers looked like boots in density. We spend all necessary seams, making double high slippers. At the edge of the bootleg sewing a strip of fur andwe wrap it inside. From white fleece we form two identical bow, which we sew on the boots from behind. They are made as simple as possible, cut out an elongated rectangle and collect the fabric in the center, so the bow turned out. Cutting of the kokoshnika For the Snow Maiden headgear we prepare the handle andcardboard. Kokoshnik draw a small, separate patterns do not need to create - you can draw on the back of the silver cardboard. The details are cut out two, so that after combining the rear part looked no less beautiful than the front one. On the front part we take silver paper, we add a layer of sintepon. Sew both parts together along the edge, then trimedge kokoshnika thin strip of white fur. At the back we sew the string or rubber. Important in kokoshnike will be the finish, it is made in accordance with the traditional Russian costume. that is, we add rows from the beads. which will hang over the forehead. Costume decoration of the Snow Maiden The Snow Maiden costume is notwill be completed without decoration. According to the rules of good tone, it is undesirable to decorate too much, so it should be done carefully. To decorate the shelves, I chose two identical blue applications and sewn them. Appliqués were first fixed with a warm iron, then along the edge I passed a small marking, the threads would securely fix the picture on the floor of the suit. To appliques looked more elegant, they can be embroidered with beads, beads or, like me, glass beads. On the surface of the shirt-front, I even uniformly sewn six snowflakes with large bugles in the center. I also decorated snowflakes and glass beads with boots and a kokoshnik. In addition, I decorated the kokoshnik with threads withwhite beads. You need to act this way: fix the thread on one side of the kokoshnik, put six beads on the string and fix the resulting loop through 1,5-2 cm. Thus, make several loops, placing them symmetrically. The second row starts from the middle of the first loop of the first row, and the third from the first loop of the second row. You will get an ornament that mimics the antique decoration of hats. Your little beauty surely like the outfit and you can go on holiday!
