My girls love dressing up for World Book Day. They love reading and have lots of characters that they love and want to dress up as. This year Little Miss J is still really into Star Wars. Last year she went dressed up as Darth Vader and this year she wanted to be Princess Leia. I made her a really easy costume out of a bed sheet which didn’t even need any sewing so I thought I would share it with you.
Simply get a single white bedsheet and fold it in half. Get your child to lie on it with their head over the folded top and draw around them.
Cut out the shape, making sure to leave the fold intact (don’t cut the folded side).
Cut a small hole in the folded top for their head.
Then you can just glue gun the sides closed, leaving the ends of the arms and the bottom open. Make sure you use a lot of glue and press it down quickly. You could of course sew this if you had more time or the inclination, it wouldn’t take long. Just fold the costume inside out and sew the same edges before turning the right way again.
Pop the costume over your child’s head and tie around the middle with silver ribbon. I put Little Miss J’s hair into buns on the side of her head to finish off the look.
I think it’s quite simple but very effective!
If you follow video tutorials better, I have made a video showing how to make this costume…
