Do-it-yourself Christmas tree costume for a girl for the New Year
Do you feel the approach of the New Year? I think you're already teased by the festive decorations of the shops. But this is for ordinary passers-by. But parents face a new task - a children's costume for the holiday. Which? Of what? I decided to make a selection on this topic. And, if earlier I wrote about the Snowman outfit for boys and girls, today we will consider a cute and fluffy Christmas tree.
Of course, these ideas are more suitable for girls. Therefore, in our arsenal today we have dresses and skirts.
But before you start sewing, let me remind you that you can create a garland, Santa Claus, Snowman, New Year's clock with your own hands. Sew toys for the Christmas tree from felt and independently create the hero of the occasion from improvised materials.
But back to the suit. You need to stock up on green cloth. It is better if it is shiny satin, gabardine, lace or velvet. Felt looks less elegant.
Also, the outfit needs to be festively decorated. And so we stock up on braid and ribbons. Tinsel and rain will do, as well as beautiful beads and buttons.
Shall we start making?

Christmas tree costume for a girl for the New Year, we build a pattern with our own hands
Here is a variant of a light dress. It consists of a base on which tulle is sewn in stripes. It is done quickly and I will try to describe in sufficient detail the process of its creation.
- T-shirt according to the size of the child,
- thick transparencies or newspaper,
- ruler or measuring tape,
- satin (size depends on the height of the child),
- tulle (3*0.6 m),
- thread with a needle,
- thin tape.
First, take a T-shirt to make a dress pattern. According to my measurements, the length of the dress from the shoulder seam is 55 cm. But you can have your own sizes, because the children are different in height. We will lay this length on the pattern later, from the bottom of the T-shirt.
Now we put a thick film on the T-shirt (you can use a newspaper). And we circle the front with a pen.
From the bottom we measure the required number of centimeters, increasing the length. We finish the bottom pattern.
Fold the film in half, matching the lines and cut out the pattern.
We take a green satin about 40 cm wide. We pin the pattern to its inside with pins and circle it.
We make allowances along the edges of 1 cm. Cut out the part and the front part is ready.
Next, we make the back, a lock will be inserted at the back. Cut the pattern in the middle. And transfer to the fabric.
Outlining, leaving allowances. In the place of the neckline, you need to build up a little, because the back is always higher than the front. Cut out the details.
Place them right sides together and sweep up to the zipper line.
We connect the front and back and sweep the side seams and shoulders.
We sew all the seams on a typewriter, sew in a zipper or make buttons. We process the bottom of the dress and smooth the seams.
We process the neck and armholes with inlay.
Let's take care of the ruffles. Take 0.60 cm tulle. Lay it out and cut it into three parts, 20 cm wide.
Divide the dress into three parts in front and behind. To mark the line, take a remnant or chalk.
Sew the sides of the tulle. Like a circle. We put it on a dress. We form sweets and sew to the dress across the entire width and front and back.
Done. The outfit already looks festive and you can leave it like that.
But for splendor, we sew a fishing line in a zigzag pattern to the bottom of each strip of tulle. Get beautiful shuttlecocks.
So that the line is not visible, we process the edges with an oblique trim.
If desired, you can add decorations in the form of sewn small Christmas decorations, tinsel or beads.
Workshop on making a costume out of felt and paper
A simpler version of the costume. It consists of a cone-cap and cape. It can be added to a green dress or t-shirt with pants.
Make patterns as shown. The length of the cape may vary. Therefore, I do not indicate the amount of felt. First you need to cut a pattern, measure. And then buy fabric.
Transfer templates to felt. Make a cone out of paper, fastening the edges well.
Cover the cone with cloth. It is convenient to fix the felt with PVA glue and silicone hot glue from a thermo gun.
From below, the remaining allowances must be tucked in and glued. Sheathe the edge with rain or tinsel.
We transfer the cape pattern to the fabric, cut out the detail.
The cape can be made long and decorated as desired.
How to sew a dress from tinsel and tulle
Here is another interesting version of the dress. Let's take tulle as a basis, yet it creates volume well. And that's exactly what we need in a Christmas tree costume.
- bias trim,
- thread with a needle and a sewing machine.
See drawings for fabric dimensions.
i.e. we need four pieces of tulle of different lengths. We measure and cut them.
Put together and sew each section into a ring using machine stitching.
We process the bottom of each part with an oblique or zigzag trim.
Main parts sewn together and ready.
Next, find the place of the armhole, put a zigzag stitch.
We process the neck with a zigzag. And we collect in folds.
We take the tape and lay out the details on it.
Sew the tape right side to wrong side.
Turn the trim inside out and sew. Inside we will insert a ribbon that we will tie around the neck.
We will make a lining from gabardine. After all, tulle pricks. We sew the gabardine on the sides, leaving 15 cm for the armhole. We sew the bottom in two folds.
The resulting lining is sewn to the dress, starting from its middle part.
Insert the tape into the neck and tighten.
Sew tinsel along the edge of the stripes for elegance.
Video instruction on how to knit a herringbone dress for a girl
I liked another idea for a dress. It is crocheted with cotton thread and decorated with a ribbon.
More about it is described in this video. It also fully shows the creation process.
Of course, hook number 2 is small and it may take a couple of evenings to knit. But it looks beautiful.
How to make a tulle skirt without sewing for kindergarten
But the easiest option for a costume is to make a tutu skirt or a tattoo from tulle. The upper part can be anything: a T-shirt, a turtleneck, a T-shirt or a similar elastic top, as in the photo.
- medium hard tulle 3 m wide and 3 m long,
- adhesive tape or duct tape.
- ribbed top.
Below is a fabric consumption chart if you get other sizes. Usually a length of 55 cm is more than enough for a preschool child.
Let's start tinkering. Let's expand the tulle in length.
Now let's draw the fabric. You need to cut the strips so that they do not stretch in length. Otherwise, the skirt may be slightly deformed.
Measure 55 cm. Fold the fabric in half and cut. The width of the strips is 15 cm.
Now we take the top. If you do not have this, then take a wide elastic band "honeycomb". It is sold in all sewing stores.
For convenience, the top is better to pull on the mannequin. Don't have a mannequin? Then we put it on a plastic bucket or jar.
Take a strip of fabric and fold it in half. We collect by hand.
Pull the elastic of the top through the hole (starting from the second row from the bottom), form a loop and tie a knot.
You need to make two rows.
To prevent the top from showing through, put on a green T-shirt, blouse or sew on a lining under it.
Tulle skirt without sewing with honeycomb elastic
Now let's look at how to make a simple skirt without using a top. First, let's see the process of creating a "honeycomb" based on an elastic band, below there will be a master class with a regular elastic band.
We take honeycomb elastic and tulle of medium hardness in the color you need (3 meters).
Gum is better to take a similar plan. It comes in different widths.
But you can get by with the usual one, more on that below. The splendor of the skirt depends on the width of the elastic band.
Next, we need to take strips of tulle 15 cm wide. we will fold it in half.
Next, determine how many lanes you need. For such an elastic band, everything is simple. We count from the bottom how many holes are in the second row.
We got 33 holes, so we cut off 33 strips. Next, determine how many rows you will do, the more of them, the more magnificent and less transparent the skirt will turn out.
For example 3 rows. Each has about 33 bands. So you need to cut 99 strips of tulle. This means that its width is 3 m, and the length is equal to the length you need, for us it is 60 cm.
Lay out the fabric in 4 layers, smoothing the edges and ends. We mark 15 cm with soap and cut the strips.
We start to tie them. To do this, take one, folded in half.
Thread the middle through the elastic hole. We pass the ends into the loop formed and tighten the knot.
Straighten the tulle immediately. Next, we make the second row in a checkerboard pattern.
If desired, you can take different shades. For the Christmas tree, the alternation of green and red is suitable.
Tutu skirt made of stripes with a regular elastic band
Well, a very quick version of the tutu looks like this.
We take an ordinary elastic band. Its length is equal to the volume of the child's waist. Fold the elastic in half and sew the edges.
We stretch the elastic band over a jar or plastic bucket. This is for convenience.
And we tie strips of tulle around the entire circumference of the elastic band. You already know how to cut the strips from the previous master class.
When there is no free space left on the elastic, you can start decorating.
Front with a pretty red satin ribbon bow.
Christmas tree costume headpiece
Of course, a costume consists of more than just a dress and a skirt. The headgear is also important. Therefore, I offer a master class on creating a beautiful kokoshnik or cardboard crown.
Before starting the nuances.
- First, you need a thick cardboard or glued several times.
- Secondly, you need to choose the fabric that will be the base. Satin, crepe, guipure. You can replace the fabric with paper.
If you use satin and PVA glue, spots will appear, it is better to replace with paper or guipure.
- heavy paper or green cloth,
- ribbons, 8-12 cm wide,
- rubber band,
- PVA glue,
- braid and beads for decoration.
The pattern is in front of you.
Transfer it to thick cardboard and cut it out.
Begin to glue the base.
First glue one side of the crown.
Apply this side to fabric or paper and let dry. Then the material will completely stick. For the best grip, we put a weighting agent on top.
Cut out the crown. We do the same with the second side. After drying, we begin to decorate.
Take the tape and glue the edge. To do this, you will have to cut the desired length of the braid.
It remains to fix the beads on the front side of the kokoshnik.
Understanding how the crown will stay on the head. We take a piece of gum, measure it along the back of the child's head.
Next, take a strip of tape, measure the length +2 cm from the size of the elastic band. Because when we insert an elastic band, it will stretch.
We turn the strip inside out, sew the edges and do not touch the ends. Turn the strip out.
Next, we make ties for the kokoshnik. To do this, we mark two cuts of the tape, about 50-80 cm long and 8-10 cm wide. We fold each strip in half and sew it on a typewriter. Turn right side out and iron.
Let's take care of the drawstring. We insert a paper clip into the elastic band and stretch it through the tape sewn in advance.
Sew the edge of the fabric along with the elastic. This is necessary so that the tape does not go.
We take the crown. From the wrong side we glue the tape for the tie. She has one side of the drawstring.
Do the same with the second side.
It turns out such an ornament on the head.
The bands can be tied under the chin or at the back of the head.
Below is a tutorial on how to create a kanzashi-style head ornament.
Now for a couple of quick headwear options. Often mothers simply take a headband and decorate it.
Fabric, the same tulle, artificial twigs and rowan berries are taken as decor. Or here is an example of using cones.
In general, we take everything that is at hand.
How to quickly and easily make a Christmas tree costume from an ordinary t-shirt and skirt
Now I'll show you another simple way to create a costume. It consists of a white t-shirt and skirt. The skirt is tied like an apron at the back of the child's waist.
- white T-shirt with a small pattern on the chest,
- tight mesh for bouquets,
- lining fabric,
- ribbon and Christmas toy for decoration.
Take the grid square, fold diagonally. We assemble with an accordion and connect with a stapler.
Several types of mesh can be used. With a pattern or take a different shade.
All blanks in the form of feathers are ready, we make the basis for the skirt.
To make it not transparent, let's take two layers of this grid. The width is 20-30 cm, and the length is equal to the circumference of the child's hips + 15 cm.
Put the strips together. On them with the help of a stapler we fix the blanks in the form of feathers.
Finish the top of the skirt with tape. Leaving allowances for ties about 20 cm. We sew on a typewriter.
Making decorations. We take nylon tape. We fold a bow from it and sew on a Christmas tree toy.
Attach the decoration to the bottom of the hem.
Tie a skirt like an apron.
To prevent the skirt from pricking, you can sew a lining.
Or cut off the bottom of an old dress.
Let's take care of the top of the outfit.
We take a white T-shirt. If you have a drawing, don't worry. Just cut out a triangle from white fabric, wider than the pattern.
We sew it on the appliqué. On top of the white fabric we sew a piece of the same mesh as on the skirt. And decorate it all with tinsel.
On the top of the "herringbone" we will attach the same dyeing from ribbons and a Christmas decoration as on the hem of the skirt.
Herringbone Costume Ideas
Here, this cute suit is made according to the principle of the upper master class.
Below is an idea that can be made with thick felt or cardboard.
\ This is how the suit looks when unfolded.
Another simple but interesting idea.
Satin looks much more elegant because of its sheen.
Wear this headgear.
The more tiers and strips of tulle, the more luxurious the costume looks.
Such a funny outfit for girls is decorated with tinsel.
Here the bottom of the strips of fabric is finished with fishing line and bias binding. As we watched in the very first master class.
The headband on the girl's head is decorated with tinsel.
Very charming herringbone.
So many different ideas to inspire you.
A simpler costume with a garland.
Beautiful combination of green and red shades.
Here is a beauty in a cape with a hood.
Nice idea with a wonderful headpiece.
