Elegantly Frugal Costumes

The poor man’s do-it-yourself costume maker’s guide
By: Shirley Dearing

Age Level: All Ages

This wonderfully practical theatre costume book literally shows you how to make costumes for plays, pageants, and musicals at the lowest possible expense! Over 150 detailed illustrations work with the easy-to-follow text to walk you through every step of the process. Just about every basic period is covered: Biblical to Medieval, Renaissance, The Fabulous Fifties, 1800s to World War I, the Roaring Twenties, and more. Many helpful hints on making or buying realistic period theatrical costumes on a shoestring budget from cast-offs, donations, scraps, and other easily obtained materials.
