Disney costume patterns
We just wrapped up one show in my MS class -- Treasure Island -- which was really easy to costume. Pirates and townspeople -- piece of cake. Toughest was Long John Silver's wooden leg.
The students chose Beauty and the Beast Jr. as their next show, in May. For them, that's a great choice. (It was one of 4 larger shows that I listed that they could do.) Now we have to start thinking about casting and then costuming it. Here's where I'd like to pick your brains!
I looked into ready-made Belle ball gowns and Beast costumes. Ugh, starting at $125??? I have a couple of moms willing to sew, and I am always willing to "chip" in and sew as well. Nice and relaxing after a day at work! So, what company has the Disney contract, Simplicity, McCalls or Butterick? I can probably find this out on my own, so no problem there.
I have ideas for Cogsworth, Lumiere, and Wardrobe. But I'm a little stuck for costuming ideas for Mrs. Potts and Chip. Any ideas? This has to be "on the cheap".
All ideas cheerfully accepted!
