Description

I costumed a dinner theatre production of ’You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown’ this summer. This costume for Sally Brown was fun to make. I needed to make the actress look very young and very non-curvy. I used an old see & sew pattern # 4002 (which is actually a pyjama pattern). I omitted the buttons in the front, cut the front on the fold of the fabric and shortened the sleeves. I lengthened the body slightly and then added a gathered skirt to it.

The dress is a lovely light-weight cotton twill. The fabric for the collar and the decorative self-covered buttons are leftover from a dress I made for myself.

Sorry – I don’t have a picture of Sally by herself. But I also did Charlie Brown’s shirt – I dyed it bright yellow and then painted on the zig-zag stripe.

Material Notes

Cotton twill for the dress.
Cotton remnant for the collar and buttons
