DIY Indian Costume:
Fancy dress competitions are always thrilling for children and they all put in their best effort for it. It’s easy to buy a dress straight from the market for the competition or the party, as the case may be. But the fun part is when you make a DIY dress for your toddler for the party or the competition. It is always fun and entertaining for the kids to participate and indulge in role play at such events.
Here is how you can make a DIY Indian costume for toddler boy:
- Brown or tan long shirt or tunic
- Khaki pants in brown or tan
- Brown or tan fabric to make fringes
- Ribbon of different color and pattern
- Sewing kit
- Take the long shirt and cut the hem from the bottom edge.
- Make fringes with the hem and sew it on the edge of the shirt.
- Take a pair of scissors and cut the neck into a V shape or a round neck.
- Take a piece of brown fabric and cut fringes out of it and sew it to the middle of the shirt.
- With another piece of brown fabric, fold it into a long strip to make a belt. Sew it to the shirt on top of the middle fringe. Sew a patterned ribbon on top to give a traditional feel.
- Take brown fabric and make fringes with it. Sew these fringes to the sleeves of the shirt.
- Similarly make fringes and sew them along the sides of the khaki pants.
- Using the patterned ribbons, sew them on the front top of the shirt and the lower front bottom of the shirt to give an even pattern.
Couple the dress with a head band with a feather and the look is complete.
