Natasha, it’s like from garbage bags and what to sew? Packs cut into strips and how next? - Sew for the middle? I would have some kind of picture or little scheme, otherwise my brains will swell. We have Christmas Eve on the 24th, there are plenty of things to do at home, and this holiday is with a washcloth at school. So at the wrong time!

So this is just a thought in my head, there are no pictures.
Just if the costume for the performance, and even the minute role - is it worth bothering with a complex costume? Especially if you don’t really know how to sew.
I imagined it like that - like a lion in the previous pictures, but not the rings stick out, but the stripes. That is, the strip is long, it has a middle - there is also a place of attachment to the fabric. Left and right edges stick out. You can lay out a series of strips from top to bottom on the dress - and in one fell swoop with large seams sew on a typewriter. And you can close it in the ring, then sew across the edge across, then such droplets will fall down. By the way, I walked about topics now - they knit more from T-shirts, they are stronger than ordinary garbage.

And I also really like the idea of ​​a tutu skirt. Make small “packs” on the head and hands, so that the washcloth is different from the ballerina.

Mom july

Oh, how many questions! Mine is not lost.

How this suit is sewn, or rather:
Wings - do I need a frame? From wire, for example, or regiline.
Tail- how to make it stand up? Or is it just for a photo he was put
And finally halo - whether filling is necessary, than.
It seems that many costumes were sewn, this is a snag

I now have such a suit at home, they brought it to me to alter it, the buttons are terrible, they all pulled out, the fabric is bad, the slippers are completely unclear what
now on
Wings on both sides of the atlas, inside the synthetic winterizer everything is stitched, there is no rigilin or frame, they are held on by buttons that all come off
tail not standing, normal - hanging
what kind of filling? so that the volume is larger ?, there is nothing there, just the fabric itself is dense
the halo is just a fight, without a frame, hanging out, as it doesn’t stick on the photo
