How To Make A Maleficent Costume!


Welcome to Pins and Things. Today we’re going to be making this Maleficent Costume. So what you’re going to need is a suit jacket and I just got this one on a thrift store. For like 6$. Super cheap But it just fits me pretty well and it’s gonna be matching material that I got Which is I actually just wore this to the store and matched it up with the material as I was there And this is just probably around 3 yards. You probably aren’t gonna need that much but just to be safe And then you’re also gonna need a sewing machine and a basic sewing kit like pins and scissors and measuring tape and things like that. Also going to need So the next step is, put on your stylish jacket and then we have the material that is folded in half right now But I actually just measured it around my waist cuz I want it to come down from my waist and not from the bottom of the jacket And then, put two pins in and that’s just exactly where i’ll be cutting off the excess material. Go down on your leg where you want to trim. You’re gonna be trimming from this pin, to that pin. So I want it to go all the way down to that pin So this is where i’m gonna be cutting and i’m gonna leave at least a half inch so I can have room for sewing it i’ll get a little bit of excess material there I’m gonna be cutting it from right here all the way down to this on both sides to make the match equally Here’s a different way of looking at it, so this is the top where my fifty or my it’s fifteen because that’s my 30 inch waist right here And this is where I want it to be cut from all the way from this pin to this pin I’m just gonna hold that there, so trace from pin to pin and now i’m just laying down some more pins to make it easier to cut a line so that when I cut it, The material will still be where it needs to be. Just make sure that’s it’s laying flat as you cut it. If you want, you can unpin it, and then put it around your waist exactly where it was supposed to be and it can give you a little bit of look of what you’re gonna have. And this is with extra so that you’ll have some seam allowance and this is about the angle that you’re gonna have So I have taken it and flipped it around so normally it’s like this but I flipped it around to my back So I can see the train myself on how it’s going to lay So i’m thinking I want the train to be about half the length that’s on the floor So i’m gonna just put it like right here And then it’s gonna be rounded from this pin to that pin all the way around on the floor. I’ve just taken my pins, made sure that my material is folded in half perfectly so this is the very back of my costume right here So i’m just gonna trim and remember you want a half inch seam allowance When you trim it. If you don’t feel comfortable free handing it then just take your colored pencil and make a line before you do this. Okay, i’m so excited to take the pins off and see if it looks good. I hope it looks good that will really stink if it did not I’m just rolling the edges of this material cuz it frays if you don’t sew it So you can also use a serger if you want and then i’m just sewing it down so it’s not going to fray I’m just going around the entire outside of the material here Now that this bottom half is all sewn and stitched up, We have just pinned it, to the jacket where we want it to go And now that it’s looking a little bit matrixy Now we’re gonna go ahead and just stitch it onto the jacket where it’s at I’m just sewing it on and this is already sewed on part and here is the pinned on part And i’m just going slow and making sure I get it in the right places and just stitching it on So this is how that it’s looking now. We’ve sewed onto the back and front of the jacket And really on the inside we’ve done nothing to the jacket other than sew it on So at this point, where gonna button the top button. We’re gonna unstitch this button and put it next to this one So it looks like a double breasted jacket And then, this we’re gonna cut half an inch below to make it line up with here so you can fold it up and sew it, and still have some seam allowance so you’re not gonna cut it too short Once we’ve cut that, so it’s gonna look just the same low as this We’re gonna trim down the sides To make it kind of match up with this as it’s laying down So I cut this part out, and took it and flipped it onto this side over here and then I also cut this part out so that they matched and this button I need to save to put on the double breast right here And now that I have that done, i’m going to take the material and fold it inside of itself and put a stitch over that so it’s gonna line up with this line right here and I want it to line up with that line cuz it will look better and then as I’m done with that and stitch that i’m gonna do the exact same thing all the way down on this side and then do it on this side and this part will be done I have about a 30 inch piece of cardboard and I’m just gonna mark in the middle, right here. So and then I have about a 14 and a half piece of cardboard So i’m gonna mark it at a seven and a fourth of an inch and that is where i’m going to cut the whole piece in half So I have my middle part all marked off. So this is the very middle of it And i’m just gonna make two triangles From this point, out And i’m just cutting out four of these So I have the four pieces. This is just two of them and I’m making them about an inch shorter With this cardboard you want this triangles to be able to bend and you want the grain of the cardboard to be able to fold just like that I’ve just cut in the shape of kind of my neck I want the longer part to go on the back for a little more of stability And then the pointer part is just gonna come right here around my collar bone a little bit I’ve traced those onto the other two triangles And then I want it to be an inch and a half shorter for this is the bottom one will go underneath So i’m just gonna cut I just kind of eyeballed it and drew on right here that line. And then i’m gonna cut that and made sure that I trim my other one in the exact same way And then they will all be cut in the right shape and the right length Here’s my bottom two pieces and here’s my top two pieces And the bottom ones are supposed to be shorter and then the top ones, like this Kind of what we’re going for The bottom piece is about ten inches to the neck but it still needs to go out about eleven and a half inches to the bottom of the triangles So that you can a cut out a place for your neck And then the top triangles are thirteen and a half at the longest point Taking my hot glue and putting it on the edge of the cardboard and this is where i’m going to put my wire I put double hot glue around the edges just to make sure that this will not pop off and it’s pretty sturdy and pretty bendable so that I can you know bend it in the way that I want to Right here I have the material folded in half and I’m going to take each piece and trace it out on my material And then I also need to give it a little bit extra room because it has to be able to be wider than this To fit around the whole thing if that makes sense But i’m going to trace it just like this and I’m then give it a little bit of slack And so a little case for around each of them. So i’m gonna do this to all of them I’m sewing the edges together here This is how much space i’m giving it, So i’m actually just keeping the red line right on the edge of this and i’m just stitching it up Together Yeah but it’s stitched together and you can see a little red line. We’re gonna flip it inside out, and just like a pillow case, put it over the top of the cardboard Here’s the end of each triangle it already has the cardboard in it and i’m just folding it and stitching it together Once we we’re done, sewing the casing around it we just bent it in the shape that we saw on the picture online and then we sewed the bottom together so it’s not gonna fray and now, it’s time to safety pin it on. And the collar of this jacket is just folded under that’s all that’s gone That’s all we’ve done with it I’m actually safety pinning it on this bottom part so that when we fold it over it will have a little bit of area to, it’s not gonna be pertruding. And we made it so that you can take it off and wash the jacket I hope you loved this costume idea it was really awesome to make and it looks amazing.
