35 simple costumes to make for parties and dress-up games, with pull-out full-size pattern sheets. Children love to dress up, whether it's for parties or just for everyday fun. If you want to add to your dressing-up box without spending a fortune, Emma Hardy has designed 35 magical costumes that will satisfy every child. Whether you have a little princess or a superhero in your family, or your children favour the traditional roles of cowboy, pirate, or nurse, there are ideas here that are easy to make and much more effective than shop-bought outfits. All the favourites are included, such as animals - a lion, a ladybird, a dinosaur - and fairy-tale characters from Red Riding Hood to the Gingerbread Man. Two pull-out sheets are included with all the full-size patterns you will need, and there's a techniques section so you can brush up on your sewing skills. Your children will love these fancy-dress makes, and when the party's over, you can add them to your dress-up cupboard at home for many more hours of fun.
