About making costumes using crepe paper:
Most costumes are made over a muslin foundation to which the crepe paper is sewed or pasted. The materials are inexpensive and very stricking and unusual costumes may be made with very little work.
The “slip-over” costume is very popular as it may be worn over any simple clothing and quickly removed.
The foundation is a full width of crepe paper cut out either oblong or rounding for the neck so that it will hang straight down front and back.
Turn under the outer edge from shoulder to waist line both front and back and make one or two tucks to make the waist the correct width.
To this foundation are added ruffles, fringe or cut-out designs.
