The costume of a hussar for a boy sewn by his own hands will be the most desired and unforgettable garment for the celebration. The main thing is to correctly create a romantic, courageous image and take into account the main attributes of the hussar.
Preparation of the material for tailoring the costume
Hussar's outfit consisted of several details. The main ones were a mentik - a cape with fur, a doloman - a short jacket, a shako - headdress, chikchiry - cavalry trousers, boots - narrow high boots. Before sewing a hussar costume for a boy, you need to decide on the details, prepare a monophonic fabric of red and black colors. You can refuse from mentik, as the child will be uncomfortable and hot. You can also simplify the sewing of clothes by cutting rows of loops. In the decoration of chikchir, you can limit the lamp, excluding the presence of buttons. Accordingly, to make a suit, you need 3 meters of gold cord, 8 large copper buttons for fastening the doloman and 16 smaller buttons that will decorate the ends of the loops. To create a shakkin, you will need cardboard.
We sew the hussar doloman
The costume of a hussar for a boy should begin with the tailoring of a dolman. As a pattern, you can take a denim jacket child and, turning out, circle the details on a cotton cloth of red color. The collar of the dolman must be standing. The golden braid is sewn in eight rows on the shelves, creating a loop on the left side, and to the right to sew large buttons. They will be fastened with a jacket. Ends of loops decorate with small buttons. Also, if desired, the cord adorns the back and cuffs of the sleeves of the dolman.
The New Year's costume of a hussar for a boy must have epaulettes. Expand the shape of the shoulder four parts. Two of them are duplicated. Stitch out the details in pairs, turn them out, sew a hole with a hidden seam. Attach the epaulettes to the shoulders of the jacket, adorn the edge with the same golden cord.
We sew hussar pants
What kind of hussar uniform without chikchir? Soldier trousers should be narrow. You can remove the pattern from underwear or pantyhose, slightly increasing it. To create pants, take a cloth black or navy blue, transfer the details of the pattern, cut out. Then stitch the side and step seams from the wrong side. On the front side of the trousers draw a hussar knot from the cord. On the sides also decorate the legs with stripes. Handle open edges, insert the rubber band.
Creation of a headdress
The carnival costume of a hussar for a boy must necessarily include a shako. Before making, you need to make a pattern of cardboard, which will later serve as a frame. First draw a rectangle, the long side of which will correspond to the circumference of the child's head. Add 1 cm for a loose fit and 2 cm from one short side to connect the part. The tip of the shiver cylinder in front is slightly overestimated. To create the appearance of the vertex, divide the length of the rectangle in half, lift the middle 5 cm upwards. Connect the resulting point to the tops of the sides. Next, glue the cylinder joints on the back of the head. To make the top of the headdress, attach a rectangular pattern with the part where the top will be located, to a piece of cardboard and circle the marker. To the resulting oval, add an allowance of 2 cm, cut out the pattern, make incisions. In the future, the allowance will need to be bent and, inserting inside, glued to the cylinder. You can trim the shako with a cloth of black color. Cut out the same parts that were made for the frame. Cap the visor in the shape of a crescent. Pattern allowances are glued on the inside of the cylinder. And also sew it with a cloth of black color.
Then the headpiece is decorated with a gold cord with brushes, which should be on the front part of the shako and, freely crossing it from left to right, hang down to the shoulder. At the top of the cylinder, attach the sultan. You can make it from a cocktail tube covered with fur.
The costume of a hussar for a boy should be easy to wear, and not overloaded with attributes. Additional accessories can be a saber, a hussar bag, spurs. Your little soldier is ready. In a dress sewn by Mom's hands, he will cause respect and catch the admiring glances at any celebration or carnival.
