In the event that such a demanded New Year's costume of a snowflake is required, the probability of meeting a dozen more "snowflakes" in the same outfit is very high, and adults in fact do not like it. Prices in this period are extremely high, and the ability to sew to order is far from many.

#### Simple ideas for a dress

If you spend a little time, you can sew a beautiful snowflake suit yourself. Ideas for this costume can be found mass, both for those who can perfectly sew, and for those who have not yet mastered this craft. The first, on forces to make a pattern and to make a dress. How to sew a suit of snowflakes with your own hands, namely one of its simplified versions, is described below.

The minimum set for the outfit is bolero and skirt. It is possible to sew such a set fast enough. In order to make a bolero pattern, you can take any sweatshirt or vest of a child and draw a silhouette on paper, without forgetting to round off the front shelves. This wardrobe item is fastened to one upper button using an air loop. For the convenience of the child bolero is made without sleeves, like a shortened waistcoat without threads. It is advisable to make the inner lining layer, it is possible from the top material.

If the bolero everything looks unique, with a skirt you can dream up. Here are a few ideas for the snowflake skirt.

1. Skirt "the sun-klesh". In order to cut it, it is necessary to draw on a cloth a circle of the correct size with a round hole in the middle.

Calculate the diameters of circles is simple. To determine the size of the inner hole, it is necessary to measure the size of the child's waist. Adding to the obtained value of 5 centimeters, according to the formula of the circumference, the value of the diameter of the inner circle is calculated (Diameter = waist size + 5 / 3,14). It is important not to be mistaken, taking the size of the diameter of the length of the child's waist, because the size of the skirt in this case is suitable for the mother.

With the outer radius is still simpler, the inner one needs to retreat a distance equal to the length of the skirt + 2 centimeters to the tissue folding.

The lower edge of the skirt is hemmed, for the top, it is desirable to cut another detail - a circle whose inner radius coincides with the same on the pattern of the skirt, and the outer one is 5 cm from it.

The details are stitched together on the inner radius (faces), then they unfold along the seam, after which the strap is attached to the wrong side of the skirt, leaving a couple of centimeters to insert the rubber band.

2. Multi-layered skirt. To make it, you need a light tulle, nylon or other suitable fabric. To reveal a skirt is simple: three rectangles of the same length of 1.3-1.5 meters and with a width different by 5 centimeters (for example, the length of the skirt is 20 cm, then the width of the rectangles is 10, 15, 20 cm).

The panels are swept along one side, at the same time they need to be gathered up to the size of the waist circumference. After that, the lateral seams are worn away (you need to remember to keep the same cuts under the buckle on each skirt).

For the belt, you need to cut a bar 5 cm longer than the waist circumference and a width of 7 centimeters. The part is folded in half and ironed. Then all the skirts are embedded in the belt, the edges of it are bent and stretched. It remains only to bend and stitch the side sections, and also make a buttonhole under the button.

Decorate the attire can be as rhinestones and stickers for the fabric, and tinsel.

#### Trifles that are important not to forget

Carnival costume snowflakes can not be imagined without a hat. You can execute it in various ways, for example:

1. White bezel, decorated with sequins in the form of snowflakes or rhinestones.

2. Diadem made of wire, which has not lost its relevance, because from this material it is possible to add an ornament of any shape. For production you will need a usual silvery tinsel, which is worn on the wire before folding this accessory.

3. A white fabric hat decorated with snowflakes.

When the suit of a snowflake is successfully sewn by hand, it is important not to forget about such important trifles as: white tights, Czechs and a blouse or a long-sleeved T-shirt that match the style of the skirt.

Even those who are running out of time or lacking sewing skills, are able to make a snowflake costume with their own hands, having become infected with the atmosphere of the forthcoming holiday.
