DIY Costumes

Salam all..  

After taking a break from heavy sewing since end of last year, this is the perfect project to warm up my hibernating machines.  Hehe. The family costumes for Umar's 1st birthday party! Peter Pan for the boys & Princess Anna of Frozen for the girls (well, kakak Sara's outfit is store-bought, less work for mummy)

Here are the links that i referred to:

UUuUUUuu just looking at these fabrics got me excited
Trace a loose t-shirt for PeterPan top

For the neck hole, cut out 4"across x 3"down

Appliqué the number and letters with manually-cut-out felt
Cut out zig-zag strips from the sleeves & bottom

This is the sample that i got from pinterest
Mine is quite straight forward (the skirt is cut on bias)

I copied the decorations to match Sara's outfit using fabric paint & beads

Tadaaaa...!! :)
