These are some costumes I designed and made for a community theatre production of Oklahoma! The bodice of the brown gingham and orange costume was from a vintage Simplicty pattern child’s top – the skirt was a circular tablecloth.
The yellow dress was cut from Simplicity 2444 with a double ruffle added at the bottom to give it more of a period feel. The blue dress was cut from Simplicity pattern 3723. The remaining child’s dress came completely from my head – I used several cotton valances given to me by my friend’s grandmother and cut and fitted until we had the costume – she loved it!
Orange and brown gingham – cotton/polyester circular tablecloth, vintage brown gingham taffeta
