How to sew a sailor suit for a boy with his own hands?
As a rule, in any kindergarten for the holiday you need to sew a child themed costume. A lot of holidays a year! This is not only Christmas and New Year's mornings, but also on February 23, March 8, etc. The choice of characters for boys is usually not as rich as for girls. Therefore, children's costumes on military themes, stitched at home, will come in handy more than once, and will most likely be inherited by acquaintances later.
Peakless cap white striped collar
Boys like to feel like heroes. Therefore, all festive costumes imitating the soldier’s uniform will be met with enthusiasm. We will try to sew a sailor suit for the boy with his own hands. Let's remember what are the main attributes of the marine form?
This is a capless, striped collar, anchor belt, vest. Huys and beskorik, hand-made to the sailor suit for the boy - in the photo above. Let's start creating an image with a headdress.
- thick blue and white fabric;
- dark blue or black silk ribbon 2 cm wide;
- decorative element - anchor.
We begin the creation of a sailor’s suit for the boy with our own hands with measuring the girth of the head with a measuring tape. On a thick sheet of paper lay the resulting length (value A). Measure out 5 cm and cut off the strip - this is a blank for the band. For the top you need to cut a ring out of paper. Its inner and outer diameters are calculated as follows:
- D1 = A / 2 * 3.14.
- D2 = A / 2 * 3.14 +7 (cm).
From the densest dublerin we cut out two parts along it - the upper one with a solid circle and the bottom one which follows the shape of a paper ring. Further, having folded dublerin in half, we apply to it the previously prepared paper strip and cut it off.
As a result, we got three parts - the top of a cap, a crown and a band.
We sew ourselves
We spread on the blue fabric blank from Dublerin, retreating along the edges of the seam allowances of 1.5 cm, and ironed with a hot iron. Cut off. Bending the work in half with the blue side out, ironed again. In the same way, iron the remaining blanks of dublerin to the white fabric, not forgetting the allowances.We cut out, we sweep both parts from the inside out on the outer circle, stitch on the machine and cut out the teeth on the whole edge, so that the ready beskorrka looked smooth. Turning it outside and steaming with an iron.
On the inner neckline, retreating 1.5 cm, we outline the markings for sewing around the band in the form of a circle. Around the edge of the notch we make small notches with scissors. If this is not done, the seams will tighten the fabric, and our sailor suit for the boy, made with our own hands, will not be very presentable.
We blueprint the blue blank - we sew both long-side allowances inwards, bending them along the edge of dublerin. Gently sew the white top into the blue stripe by hand. We start from the outer part of the band, then turn over the work and repeat the operation on the reverse side. It is necessary to try to sew the parts as evenly as possible, without distortions. As a result, the notched round neckline should be sewn inside the blue part. We sweep the side edges of the band around so that the dublerin is inside butt. Stitch basting on the car. We cut off from the tape 2 pieces of 35 cm each, treat the edges with a lighter so that they do not open.We sew them manually with a secret seam from the back to the inside of the band exactly in the place of the joint. Stitches should not be visible on the outside. From the opposite side, exactly in the middle, we also sew an anchor with a hand, which is the main attribute of a sailor’s carnival costume for a boy, made with his own hands. Peak cap ready!
- Thick white fabric.
- Acrylic yarn in dark blue.
For the pattern of the top, cut out of thick paper a circle of a diameter corresponding to the head of the child. To do this, you can use the calculation of the pattern of his cap. For the lower part, cut a strip of paper with a height of 7 cm and a width equal to the circumference of the upper part of the product. We lay out patterns on the fabric, not forgetting the seam allowances - 1.5 cm. For the bottom we fold the fabric in half lengthwise. Cutting blanks.
Next, the lower part of the beret grind on the machine with the sides. Wrenched, folded along in half and carefully otparivaem iron. Having departed from the bent edge of 1.5 cm, we plot a line for insertion into the inside of the elastic band. It can be made decorative and executed with a blue thread if the sewing machine has such a function.This decorative element will be an additional decoration of a sailor suit for a boy, made of cloth with his own hands.
Bottom of the beret gently tackles to the free edge of the inner side of the bottom. Stitching on the car. Similarly, we sweep away the outer layer, uniformly tucking the allowances inside the work. We are wasted. We put the gum.
To make it, cut out of thick paper two identical circles with a diameter of 8 cm, make a hole in the middle. We wind the yarn on the rings put together in a thick layer so that the pom-pom turns out to be voluminous.
Very carefully cut the yarn on the outer diameter, and between the layers of paper we pull the thread tightly and tie a knot. Remove the paper, cut the ends of the thread exactly. Sew on pompon exactly in the center of the beret.
It should be noted that the real huys are made of a fabric that most resembles the usual satin of a very dark blue. Three thin white stripes on the perimeter are painted like a print. So, proceed to the patterns with their own hands sailor suit for the boy, or rather his important details.
- The fabric is dark blue.
- White paint or thin satin ribbon in white.
We need to take care that the collar is fit to fit our sailor. To do this, take measurements of the child's neck girth L, the distance from the neck to the shoulder P and the desired length of the back of D.
After that, take a piece of paper, it is better to check and start drawing a pattern. We put the point H in the upper left corner and from it we draw the horizontal to the right and the vertical down. On the vertical line, lay the distance D and put the point T. We measure another 1.5 cm down and put T1. Connect both points with a smooth line. From T1 to the right we draw the horizontal line and on it lay the segment T1K. Its length is calculated using the formula T1K = L / 3 + 0.5 (cm). From point K1, then to the right, measure the measure P and put the point K1. From it we draw two lines - upwards, to the intersection with the straight line H, where we set the point H1; and down, setting aside a length of 30-33 cm, depending on the height of the boy. Here we put the point M2 and from it to the left we draw a horizontal line, on which we postpone a segment of 5 cm, we put the point M1. Now we connect the points M1 and T1 with a smooth line.
Guyys' pattern made with her own hands for a sailor suit for a boy is ready. We spread it on the fabric, folded in half along. The place of the fold is combined with the HT1 line, we trace with chalk and cut out, not forgetting to take into account the allowances for seams of 1.5 cm.The inside semicircular part is cut slightly with scissors, so that the fabric does not subsequently tighten.
We bend the edges around the perimeter and overturn it by hand, and then we spend it on a typewriter. Well ironed seams.
On the sea collar, according to tradition, is a triple white stripe. As noted above, for its design, you can go two ways.
Carefully apply the lines with white acrylic paint, if you have the appropriate skills.It is better to take a brush flat, about 0.5 cm wide. First draw a line on the ruler on the fabric, but not with chalk, but with a felt-tip pen, otherwise the paint may lie uneven. Lay out the fabric on a flat surface, draw stripes and leave to dry completely.
- Sew strip of thin satin ribbon.To do this, on the front side, lay out the tape, estimating the optimal distance from the edge by eye, mark with chalk. Further along the markup we draw three parallel lines. We hook each strip of tape, then we spend it on a typewriter and remove the extra threads. We iron the finished product with iron from the inside.This detail of a sailor suit for a boy is made by hand. Now you can try our guys.
The main thing that the suit was sitting
It is not necessary to have all the marine accessories to create this image. Pants can be picked up everyday, as long as they are of a very dark or black shade and are wide enough. Upstairs it is best, of course, to buy a small-sized vest, but you can replace it with a white shirt of a free fit. She, too, will organically fit into the new year's sailor suit for the boy, made by her own hands. To her, perhaps, the second version of the headdress is more suitable - it takes with a pompon. Of course, the highlight of the dress will be a belt with an anchor on a metal buckle.
