Glamour Girls Costumes

Introduction

These fake-fur wraps, pinned together with flea-market brooches, were made using the same pattern as every other mantle. The girls, in grown-up skirts, blouses, handbags, and clip-on earrings, feel especially elegant thanks to their hairdos -- two ponytails, one high and one low, twisted and pinned together to resemble salon coiffures.

Cape How-To
This stole is simply a cape with a wider neck opening (mark it at 10 inches down). Make the cape following the basic directions; you will need to cut the fake fur separately.

Materials

  • Fake fur
  • Satin fabric for lining
  • Extra-large safety pins
  • Borrowed or flea-market brooch

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To put on the stole, overlap it at the front, and pin it shut with safety pins from the underside.

  2. Step 2

    Then turn back the topmost outer corner so the satin lining shows, and fasten that corner down with the brooch.
