Costumes 2

Hello everybody! Here is the second post in our Halloween costume series. For this post we will be putting together a Sandy costume. I know that this makes 3 grease costumes, but they are great costumes and people will know who you are right away.

For our version we will be doing Sandy in her Rydell High cheer leading costume. This is basically a sweater and a circle skirt. You can make a long sleeve knit top using this Burdastyle pattern. You can make it in a t-shirt knit or you can make it more sweater like with a sweater weight knit. Next you would add a peter pan collar, also in knit, remember to sew with a stretch or zig zag stitch so you can still pull this top over your head, no closures here. You can find a tutorial by Gertie on how to draft a peter pan collar here. You can then use iron on transfer paper to print out a Rydell High cheer leading logo and iron it on to your top.

For the skirt you will need a red fabric. You can use this New Look pattern or you can draft your own. Casey just finished a circle skirt sew along and you can use her instructions to draft a pattern. To make the hem nice and swingy (I know, that is not a word) you can hem it with horse hair braid.

For her blond hair, if you don't already have blond hair, we will use spray of course! This color is from Streaks N Tips in pale blond and you can get it from Sally's. First put your hair in a ponytail and then spray it. Finish it of with a red ribbon. Keep your makeup natural and innocent as is befitting of Sandy!

Have fun with it and get lots of treats on Halloween!!!!!!!
