For the costume of Santa Claus
Open the fabric
Correctly cut the fabric will help the pattern, itsit is easy to draw using the minimum number of parameters - the length and width of the product, the length of the shoulder, the length and width of the sleeve. Since the outfit of Santa Claus should look a bit baggy, one should not try to cut a fur coat around a figure. A simple cut will make it possible to create a universal size that will fit both a well-fed man and a slender girl. After all, often in this costume guests dress up. To the New Year was fun and fabulous. Lay out the fabric and mark out all the details on it. It will be a back, it has a trapezoid shape. The size of the shoulders is about 60 cm, and the detail extends down to 80 cm. The length of the product should be under your height, but consider that this suit is sewn almost to the floor. If you find such a New Year's cloth, the width of its cloth is 180 cm, this is the maximum length of the product. If your growth is much less, the upper part of the tissue remains after the transfer and the backrest can be used to create sleeves. The length of the sleeve is at your discretion, that is, according to your standards. But keep in mind that the sleeves of Grandfather Frost are long and half-closed mittens, because this winter suit is like a warm old sheepskin coat. The width of the sleeve should not be in the arm circumference, but approximately 35-40 cm, taking into account the additional centimeter on the seams. The front part consists of two halves. You can use the modified backrest pattern: it will need to be cut in half, when moving to fabric, draw a larger size of the bottom part, since there must be a smell in the product, which will make it suitable for people of different sizes. It is also necessary to change the neck by drawing it along an oblique line, the cut is made like a triangle. Cutting the fabric, be sure to add to the seams of 1 cm, otherwise the cut may become narrow in the area of the shoulders or underarms.
Finished details are stitched together in stages. If the fabric is "pouring", the internal seams - shoulder, side and inside the sleeve - can be swept manually (in the absence of special equipment) or overlock. The hem, the bottom of the sleeves and the shelves need to be bent and stitched. Each seam pass approximately 1 cm from the edge and it is better to use a double stitch, as the suit is often worn over some clothing and must be practical. The next step is the finishing of the hem, cuffs of sleeves and shelves with artificial fur. The fur is cut as long strips andsewn to the suit. You can just sweep it with frequent stitches. Such seams pass along the inner edge of the finish and are closer to the outer part. Remember that during games, New Year's dances, the suit is easy to hook, so try to perform a quality sewing of fur, always in two strands. A wider trim is sewn on the bottom, as it is necessary to highlight, "snow" the hem of the suit. Both finishes must be very close to each other, practically merging into a single detail. That the outfit is not plowing, you can sewinner belt, button or velcro. On top of the Santa Claus outfit should be supplemented with a sash that can be made from satin ribbon or cut from the remaining fabric. It's not difficult to do it - it's a double stitched belt. To give the costume an additional trim will help the decoration of sequins or beads, which should decorate cuffs sleeves, hem, neckline or sash. The most reliable seam for sequins is continuous, it can be made with threads of contrasting color. You can find a silver braid and finish with it. The main thing here is to use a silver or white coloring, which will imitate snow, hoarfrost, that is, personify the image of Santa Claus. It is slightly more difficult to sew a Santa Claus hat. First you need to measure the circumference of the head. Next, you need to find 6 wedges for the cap, 15 cm long, and width - 1/6 of the head circumference, not forgetting the allowances for seams. Then the details are sewn together, and white fur is sewn along the bottom edge. On the front part of the cap in the trim, you can make a triangular cutout, in my opinion - so it looks prettier, but you can leave and even finish. The tip of the cap is slightly picked up, and the headpiece itself should be decorated with stars or snowflakes, if there are no sewn snow elements on the fabric. The inside of the cap is a cover of red color. If you plan to walk in this suit on the city tree, it is better to warm the hat and insert the lining of the sintepon. The cover and the outer layer of the cap are caught on the bottom edge. The seam on the holster should be internal, which will ensure comfort when wearing a New Year's cap. What can you add to Santa Claus's New Year costume?For greater certainty, the Santa Claus costume can be supplemented with various accessories. For example, the necessary element - valenki - can be decorated with appliqués of snowflakes and fur. Children will certainly be pleased with the voluminous bag for gifts. It is desirable to sew from the same fabric as the suit, or from a material of the same color, but of a different shade. You can decorate a bag for gifts with white fur, paillettes, tinsel, foil stars, and tie it with a satin ribbon. To create a volume, the bag can be filled with wrapping paper or sintepon. An important accessory of Santa Claus is a staff. If you can find a beautiful, slightly curved stick, it can be decorated with a minimal - silver paint, for example. And if you take for a staff a long stem from a mop or a simple smooth stick, it can be wrapped with foil and decorated with tinsel. To simulate on the staff frost, you need to apply glue on the surface and sprinkle with salt. To build the gloves of Santa Claus, you need to draw a piece - draw a palm with a thumb extended. Then cut 2 pairs of details from the red fabric, but keep in mind that the mittens should be wide, so add 3 cm from the sides. Staple parts using an overlock or a dense overlay. In the upper part of the product, be sure to insert the elastic band so that the gloves do not slip and are not lost. You can decorate mittens with fur along the edge and with fabric snowflakes all over the palm area. The image of Santa Claus will be incomplete without a wig and a beard. These parts can be bought ready, then they will be more natural. If this is not possible - a wide beard can be made from fur or a sintepon and a linen gum.
