Description

sarah costume is made using no pattern. i measured her upper body and used calico pieces positioned onto her to get a good fit and positioned for boneing and sleeves etc. she had clothes on so i could pin the calico pieces to them. i made a paper pattern from these pieces and made a toile , the toile needed adjustments to get the right fit for sarah. for the boneing i used cable ties quick and easy especially for childrens clothes, the finished bodice was fully lined. i then made detatchable sleeves. the costume has two skirts both made from rectangles of fabric hemmed with turned waist bands and with elastic in.
apron is just a rectangle of white thick with two side ties. the coif sarah is wearing on her head was copied from the web and took about 5 trys to get right
