Complete Princess Jasmine Costume Tutorial - Part 2


Wig
  • child size opaque black tights
  • cotton batting
  • left over blue satin fabric from costume.
  • clear small hair rubber band
  • glue gun and glue sticks

Step 1: Cut the tights in half to separate the two legs. Take one of the legs and fold in half to find the middle. Tightly wrap the rubber band in the middle. Cut the end open and loosely fill both sides with batting. Set aside. 


Step 2: Take the other leg and turn inside out. Draw the curly end of Jasmine's pony tail at the end of the stocking leg with a chalk fabric marker. Sew the line you drew and clip seams and corners. Turn right side out. Generously stuff with batting leaving the top four inches without batting. 


Step 3: Take one end of the headband part of the wig and hot glue it to the top of the pony tail. Loop the headband and glue the other end on top of the first end. Wrap the remaining part of the pony tail around the headband part and glue in place. 


Step 4: Cut out a strip of fabric that is 14" by 2" inches, fold right sides together on the long end and sew down a 1/4" seam. Turn inside out and cut into three strips. Loop around ponytail and hot glue in place in the three parts shown on the picture and tuck in raw edges. Make sure to wrap tightly and cut excess. 


Headband
  • leftover blue satin fabric from costume
  • 1/2" elastic
  • blue jewel button 
  • glue gun
Step 1: Measure around the child's head. Add 1 inch to that measurement and then divide by four. Make a pattern that is 3 times that number by 4 inches. Cut a piece of elastic that is that number plus 1" by 4 inches. Stretch out the elastic and measure it. Cut a piece of fabric that is that measurement by 4 inches. 

Step 2: Place the pattern on top of the fabric, pin and cut out. Fold in half with right sides together on the long side of both rectangles. Sew down the line with a 1/2 inch seam on both, trim seams and turn right side out.  

Step 3: Place a safety pin on one side of the elastic and thread it through the shorter headband piece. Sew in place and then thread the rest of the elastic to the other end, take out the safety pin and sew in place. 


Step 4: Tuck each end of the elastic piece to the ends of the headband piece and sew in place. Hot glue the jewel button to the top middle of the headband. 



Jewelry 
  • gold leather-like fabric 
  • Velcro
  • black elastic thread
Step 1: For the necklace measure about the child's neck where a necklace would go. Loop the measuring tape and place on top of a piece of paper. Trace around to create a horizontal oval. Draw a necklace on the oval and cut out. 


Step 2: Place the pattern on top of a double thickness of fabric, pin and cut out. Sew a top-stitch around the perimeter of the necklace. Add some Velcro to the ends. 

Step 3: For the earrings draw a pattern of the earrings and cut out. Trace and make another pattern. Place both patterns onto a double thickness of the fabric. Pin and cut out. Measure around the ear and cut two pieces of the elastic thread that measurement. Make a loop out of the elastic threads and place inside of the double fabric earrings. Top-stitch the perimeter of both earrings making sure the elastic loops stay in place.
