And who else but a clown is a symbol of a wide smile, enthusiasm and joy? And for a girl and a boy it is easy to sew such an outfit, and even a clown wig can be made personally. It is only important to know some nuances and choose the right pattern.
DIY Clown Costume: Basic Details
Clowness looks little different from clowns, but this is true for adults. And the costumes for children can vary greatly: at least in that the clown girl will have a magnificent skirt and a charming headband. Basically, the children's clown costume consists of colorful long knee-highs, a simple blouse and a tutu skirt with suspenders, as well as some kind of headdress, round nose and patent-colored bright shoes. Of all this, the skirt as well as knee socks deserve special attention, since certain models are not always possible to find.
The tutu skirt is sewn from soft organza, preferably in different colors. The standard pattern for her is the usual circle, i.e. This is a classic sun skirt. To keep it volume and look defiantly, it is recommended to make at least 3 layers, of which a rigid organza will go to the bottom. The top one (1 or 2) should be sewed from individual pieces: for example, break all the "sun" into 6 parts, each 60 degrees, and cut them out of yellow, orange, blue, green, red and violet organza. Be sure to make seam allowances before stitching parts. If you wish, you can perform each layer in different combinations of shades. The braces to the skirt are most often taken removable, covered with a bright cloth or treated with paint.
Socks for a clown suit are desirable striped, also colored, and the brighter they are, the better. If only white options are available, they can be simply decorated with patches of bright fabrics. Or, from 2 identical rectangles of striped knitwear, rolled into pipes, sew gaiters: they will look in the image just as good.
To make the clown the most real, do not forget to give him the right makeup: highlight his face with white make-up, draw rosy cheeks, long eyelashes, curved eyebrows and raised corners of the lips. But the main part of the image of the clown - a wide and sincere smile.
