Some are combing all the shops in search of a collar and a cap of the right size, and someone calls up relatives and friends in the hope of finding the right suit. Our article suggests that you do something different. Try to sew attributes of the sea form with your own hands, because such a work is not as complicated as it might seem at first glance. Sailor Costume The basis of the suit is a white shirt and trousers. As trousers sailor can use any black or white pants straight cut. And to make them even more similar to the sea form, iron the arrows and find a wide black belt with a metal buckle. As for the shirt, there are a lot of options here. You can sew it, taking as a basis an ordinary shirt. Just remove the line of buttons, making a complete front shelf and V-neck. You can simply take an ordinary T-shirt of white color and sew up her sleeves. Sew them cuffs of blue fabric, the width of which will be equal to half of the child's brush. Fill the shirt with a blue or blue collar, framed by three white strips of satin fabric or ribbons. How to sew a collar for a sailor's costume with your own hands. When creating a pattern, it is quite difficult to name any specific figures. Here it is necessary to proceed solely from the individual measures of the child. Guyce - this is the name of the collar, should lie flat on the shoulders of your baby, covering the back a little. He should not hang like a cloak. Choose a suitable blue or blue cloth for the collar. You do not have to take a cotton cloth, you can choose a denim, etc. Make two identical parts as illustrated in the photo. Connect them face inward and sew on the contour, leaving the bottom not sewn. To ensure that the fabric of the finished collar does not pull, be sure to make an incision in the rounding areas. Turn the collar to the front, carefullyiron it, gently sweep the free part, bending the slices inward. Stroke the bottom. Now we need to do the design of the Huys. Traditionally it is decorated with three white ribbons, sewn along the outer edge. We do not need to strictly follow the rules, so you can do with one tape. Prepare a white satin ribbon of the desired length and take care of the design. Sweep it first along the entire outer perimeter,and then stitch on the sewing machine. As you understand, the lower part of the collar is also sewn together with the ribbon. Takes a seaman with his own hands The simplest version of beret for a sailor will be able to sew even a person who has never seriously encountered sewing. Everything is simple enough, you do not even need to use a pattern. Just follow the instructions below, and then everything will work out perfectly. To begin with, you need to cut two circles out of white fabric, as well as two rectangles. What diameter will the main circles have, choose from the circumference of your son's head. The total length of the two rectangles will be equal to the length of the circumference plus allowances for the seams. The height of the rectangles will correspond to the double height of the headgear, in this case it is 16 cm. If your fabric allows you to cut one long rectangle, then make it integral so as not to do unnecessary work. Now you need to process the edges. If there is an overlock - it's very good, if it does not - use the zigzag stitch of your machine, you can sweep the edges into the hand. Sew two rectangles together from both sides. Leave on one side not stitched about one centimeter, a little short of the middle - through this hole we will insert an elastic band. When the work is done, carefully iron all the seams. Next, you must make a seam at an altitude of about 1.5 - 2 cm. It can be made decorative. Sweep the inner side of the beret with a round base. Turn it out and hide the seam between the two sides. Accurately fold into the edges of the outer side, an example you see in the photo. Sweep all layers again, then stitch them on the sewing machine. Remove the thread from the tag. In the hole that was left not sewn, insert the elastic, tighten to the size you want, sew its edges. Sew the hole for the rubber band with a hidden seam. Beret for your sailor is ready. You need to make a blue pompon for him. Here everything is simple, and many know how to do it. Cut out two circles from the cardboard, inside make two more small circles and cut each part from the side. Fold them together, then carefully wrap the blue yarn. If you want to get a more luxurious pompon, wrap it with threads as tightly as possible. As a result, you need to cut the yarn with manicure scissors in the middle between the two cartons, stretch them a little, insert a thread between them and fasten the yarn tightly. That's all, pom-pon is ready. Accurately cut all the threads out, so that the pompon has a beautiful and even shape, sew it to the beret and the hat for the beloved sailor is ready. Bottlenose for your beloved sailor In order tomake a pattern of cap, first you need to measure the circumference of your baby's head. The resulting digit is laid horizontally on a sheet of paper, and the vertical is enough for 6-7 cm. To begin with, all the details will be cut out of the doublet. The resulting rectangle will become the band of the cap. Now you need to cut out the crown of the hat, it will be the same diameter as the previous part. In accordance with the second part, cut out the third part, which will correspond to the upper part. As a result, you should see three details for the cap, an example you see in the photo. Now the detail of the riffle, made of doubletit is necessary to glue to a cloth of blue color, use for these purposes an iron. In the same way, glue the other two parts to the white fabric. After that, cut out all three parts, leaving the allowances of 1-1.5 cm. Detail bend in half in half and do it welliron it with an iron. The more dense the part, the better, although it will be difficult to sew it. Sweep together the crown and top of the cap along the edge and sew it with a sewing machine along the outer circle. To keep the hat as uniform as possiblebetter, give the edges in a circle a zigzag shape. Unscrew the part and iron it. Next, you need to sweep the detail of the window with the crown. Making sure that all the parts are the same size, nowhere there are no extra folds, stitch the details to each other. Do not forget about the special attribute of such a cap - this, of course, two ribbons, they need to sew back to the band. First, pinch ribbons to the product with pins and stitch them around the perimeter. As a result, if desired, you can sew an anchor to the cap. Now the sailor's hat is ready. Carnival costume of the sailor with their own hands Suitssailors are for boys and girls. Find a white blouse without any additional colored elements, if you want, you can draw blue stripes on it. And the sailor's blouse is ready. Sew a collar. On the vertical, mark the length of the collar, at the back, add the parameter of the height of the bend of the neck. You should have a kind of square. Determine the length of the laces, putting the vertical line (30 cm) from the extreme notation of the width of the shoulder. Now draw two segments from the points corresponding to the width of the strap to the point corresponding to its length. You should get it just like on the diagram. Next, draw the curve on the face bent facefabric and cut the details. The part that will match the front side, decorate with white ribbons, sewn them around the perimeter. Next, sew two pieces inside the face, leaving the bottom not stitched. Through it, you need to unscrew the collar on the front side and thoroughly iron the part. Now sweep the bottom of the product, bending the slices inward. Stitch the bottom on the sewing machine. The collar for the sailor girl is ready. As for the bottom of the costume for the girl, the shorts or panties should simply be replaced with a skirt of blue color. For a sailor suit, a semi-sunny skirt is a good fit. Also with military suits, skirts of straight cut or with folds perfectly match. A straight skirt is best suited to a tunic, and a skirt with folds best suits t-shirts. To carve a straight skirt, you need to take two values: the length of the product, as well as the waist circumference. Calculate the width of the product by multiplying the waist circumference by 1.33. Suppose, if the waist circumference is 53 cm, then multiplying it by 1.33, we get the value 70.49. Round the value to the whole and measure on the fabric 71 cm. You need to make two rectangles. The first of which will correspond to the length of the skirt and width of the product (in our example it is 71 cm). The second rectangle is needed to make the belt. In length it will be equal to the waist circumference (in our case it is 53 cm), width is 15 cm. Each of the rectangles is connected separately into a circle. Belt fold in half so that the free ends are on top. Prepare a thick rubber band, the width of which will be about 1.5-2 cm, measure it around the waist and also join it in a circle. The elastic band must be inserted into the belt and the edges of the belt connected using a sewing machine. Now mark 8 points on the belt and the top of the skirt. To do this, fold each of the pieces four times in half, pinching the bends with the pins. Next, we will tie a belt with a skirt from one pin to the other, stretching the belt to the mark on the skirt. Bend the bottom of the product and stitch it with a machine seam. Skirt with folds for the sailor This model should be sewn as follows: measure the length of the product on the fabric, taking into account the allowances for seams, the width is calculated from the value of the waist circumference, as well as the size of the folds. You can make folds the same or let them goto meet each other, pinching them with needles. As a result, the top of the product should correspond to the waist circumference of the girl plus 2 cm to the allowances. Stitch the top of the skirt, treating the wrinkles with an iron, treat the bottom of the product with a machine seam, tucking the edges, and sew the belt. The first and second version of the skirt can be made without a tucked-in waistband, just sewing a rubber band. Please note, if you do not have much experience in sewing, after each perfect action, attach the product to the child, so that you have everything right. Experience and skills come with time and practice. As you could see for yourself, making a carnival costume is not so difficult. Most often, things from everyday life are taken as a basis. It can be trousers, shirts, belts, etc. Therefore, before you sound the alarm, properly review the wardrobe of all your loved ones, you will certainly find those garments that can be changed to your baby. The second important condition is the availability of free time. This is not surprising, because mothers, who are also working, are very difficult to find free time for these purposes. If, in addition, you need to purchase the missing materials and decor elements, then there may not be time left. Therefore, think in advance and plan your free time to create a carnival costume, to gradually cope with it, and not sit at night. If you still did not find the right clothes, then you need to sew it yourself. Do not try to find the pattern of the required costume. Just find a suitable pattern of ordinary clothes that will fit the costume. In the case of a sailor, this can be a shirt or trousers. Variations in the performance of a sailor's or seaman's costume are very much, but so that your child can feel confident, comfortable and liberated, choose the model in which he will be comfortable, and which he really likes.
