More dress-ups as part of the season of 3. This time capes and super-hero headbands.
I drafted the cape pattern from Enid Gilchrist’s Fancy Dress publication.
To accompany the capes I also made superhero headbands courtesy of Curly Pop’s brilliant tutorial.
This one above is for my special mr 3. It was the first time I sewed with sateen and initially I was apprehensive about it slipping and sliding everywhere but for a pattern as simple as this there was nothing to it really.
And I made two of these for the January birthday girls.
I have really enjoyed sewing dress-ups for gifts. Although I was a little disheartened when E. wrapped a bright pink curtain (left at our home by the former owners) and then proceeded to be a tiger – with a vivid imagination such as his fancy dress-up costumes really aren’t a requirement.
