Costumes for Nursery Tale Characters.
Greenhowe, Jean
In this book, the author illustrates and describes ways to make a variety of costumes and accessories with a minimum of sewing for children from about five to twelve years old. The instructions for most of the costumes shown in this book are based on a simple one piece tunic pattern which has only two seams and which may be made to fit all sizes and styles by altering necklines and sleeves and by varying lengths. Although the theme of the book is nursery tale dress, the patterns and ideas should enable readers to create other costumes. Full instructions are given for Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Little Miss Muffet, Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother, Hot Cross Buns, Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, the Queen and Knave of Hearts, the Frog Prince and the Princess, Wee Willie Winkle, Goldilocks and Baby Bear, Little Bo-Peep, Aladdin, Mary Mary Quite Contrary, and Puss in Boots. Suggestions are also given for dressing other nursery tale characters by varying and interchanging parts of the costumes in the book. (JM)
