How to Make Wilma Flintstone Halloween CostumeTuesday, October 29, 2013
First, go to a fabric shop and get a white cotton fabric that is not too thin or transparent. I'm a UK size 8 and I needed 3 meters to make 2 toga dresses. One for me and one for my 1-year-old.
Once you get home, lay out your fabric on a large working surface. You can see that I did this on my baby's playmat. Put a loose fitting dress of yours on the edge of the fabric, and fold over the fabric twice. So you'll have 4 layers of fabric (I did 4 pieces of fabric because I wanted to line my dress - 1 layer of white would be too thin or transparent). Remember to leave about 1 inch on each side. This is where the tape would go. Cut the excess fabric off.
Cut off a shoulder, making sure you have enough fabric to tie a ribbon on the shoulder. Cut a ' ) ' shape on the other side as the arm hole.
|I forgot to take a photo of how mine looked like after the shoulder is cut. Here is a baby's version.|
I repeated the steps above for Lauren's dress. The only difference is that hers is not lined, makes it even easier. Wilma and Pebble Flintstones are now ready to party!
