These historical costume collages are made very simply and are suitable for a wide age range.  They add life to costume history study. 

Begin by making a basic black or white card silhouette of the traced outline of a particular garment model picture. Templates are here at the silhouettes section.

Next iron fabrics onto fusible interfacing such as Vilene.  Or use double sided adhesive film instead.  Both allow the fabric to be cut without fraying or marking the fabric with glue. 

Arrange pieces of shaped fabric on the black card silhouette and glue into place. Neaten untidy edges with trims.  Stick the fabric silhouette to a card background. 

Finally an oval mount of a darker tone can be put over the collage and an edge trimming or braid applied to the join.
