Stage Costumes for Girls.
Greenhowe, Jean
This book contains full instructions for making 14 costumes for girls to fit any sizes up to about 147 cm (4 feet 10 inches) in height. All the garments can be made to fit any child's individual measurements without the need of complicated pattern pieces. Simple basic shapes such as rectangles and circles are used for the patterns and the only dressmaking experience required is to be able to gather, sew seams, and turn hems. Fabrics are suggested for each of the 14 costumes and instructions are given for assembling all costume pieces, including shoes if special styles are needed. The costume styles are a Grecian costume, 5th century B.C.; a pedlar costume, 19th century; a bathing suit, c. 1880; a Spanish dress; a Puritan costume, c. 1655; an ancient Egyptian costume; a Japanese kimono; a 1920's evening dress; a Tutor costume, c. 1530; a Welsh costume; an Eastern costume; a Victorian evening dress, c. 1850; a Celtic queen's costume, c. A.D. 50; and an Empire costume, c. 1815. (MKM)
