STEP 2: THE DIAL
Trace a circle onto the black felt and cut it out. Then cut ten white circles for the numbers, one for the middle, and a curved piece for the catch. Hot glue everything into place for the dial. If you’re feeling sparkly, line the edge of the black circle with glitter. With the marker, make the numbers – in case you’ve forgotten what a rotary phone looks like, the numbers start with “0” on the lower right, and continue to “9” clockwise.
STEP 3: THE DRESS
An old black dress is ideal for this costume, as the A-line shape emulates the bottom of the rotary phone, but a black shirt can work as well. After the dial has dried (about 5 minutes) glue it to the tummy of the dress with the hot glue. Make sure you aren’t wearing it when you hot glue it!
