How to make a Christmas tree costume for a girl
The easiest way is to make a Christmas tree costume with your own hands, if a green dress is available, in this case, minor revision will be required. A long, light dress of an older sister can be gathered on an elastic band on the chest and hips, making a slight slouch. Sheathe the hem with tinsel, add accessories to the outfit: a light cape, shoes covered with fabric to match the dress, a rim.
A straight dress made of dense fabric is easy to turn into a tiered dress. You will need a piece of fabric such as muslin or chiffon. Cut out three rectangles, equal in width, but different in length, sew them to the waist of the dress. Disguise the seam with tinsel.
On a short dress with a fluffy skirt, you can sew a peplum and cape collar. Decorate the head with a pointed hat or tie a lush beautiful bow.
If you have sewing skills, it will not be difficult to sew an elegant dress in the shape of a trapeze from a piece of satin or satin. Cut it out according to a T-shirt or dress from the wardrobe, make it flared from top to bottom. Decorate with various sparkles, because the New Year tree should shine, shine in all its glory.
An interesting version of the costume is a T-shirt with a skirt. Cut out a tutu skirt from green or blue tulle, choose a T-shirt or blouse to match the skirt. Play up the outfit with bright accessories.
The chiffon sun-flared skirt will turn out to be festive and elegant. Sewing it is easy: fold a square piece of fabric four times, set aside ¼ of the waist in the upper corner, set aside the desired length from this line down and draw a line parallel to the top. Cut along these two lines. Sew a belt to the skirt, trim the hem.
