About Sew-Easy Costumes

Sew-Easy Costumes

History Topics Inspire the Imagination

I grew up with Cloth Kits and loved being able to cut out a pattern that was printed onto fabric and sew it up. My costume kits take the same principle and translate the designs to school history topics. They also work for World Book Day if a favourite book should be set in any of the periods the costumes cover.

They give children the opportunity to sew their own costume - if they want or the school has a sewing club - and for busy parents, all the trims are included so no additional shopping is required to complete the costume. Average sewing time for an experienced sewer would be three to four hours - some of the more simple costumes could be created in an hour and are particularly well suited to beginner sewing projects.

The costumes are sized for several different ages groups based on the years in which the national curriculum focuses on the topic, 5-6 years, 7-8 years and 9-10 years. The Victorian Wealthy Girl costume is a size 11-12 years. There are also Nativity costumes which have a smaller 3-4 years as well as 5-6 years and 7-8 years.

I hope you have fun with them.
