October 2001


This is the first costume, let alone the first human sized clothing item I had made. (That's if you don't count the sleep shirt assignment in Junior High home economics.)

I Dream of Jeannie   Jeannie Costume   I Dream of Jeannie Costume   Jeannie Costume



McCall's 9559 - The pants were altered to remove the shorts and change the shape of the yoke.|
Butterick 3345 - The bolero Jacket was altered.

Please note: I understand these patterns are out of print. I do not sell my own patterns or have any patterns available. You can try to do searches for used patterns on the web or ebay. I would suggest any sort of Jeannie costume pattern could work, it does not need to be McCall's 9559. You could also adapt Belly Dancing Harem pant patterns. This web site has a harem pants pattern which could form the base of a Jeannie Harem pant: http://www.artemisimports.com/patterns/ Any sort of fitted jacket pattern will work for the bolero jacket, you may even find some commercial bolero jacket patterns online or at your local fabric store which would require very little modification. (Simplicity, Butterick, McCall's, Kwik Sew - they always have basic jacket patterns).


Bolero Jacket: Red polyester velvet
Bandeau Top: Strapless Bra covered in hand pleated polyester chiffon
Pants: Yoke - red polyester velvet. Legs - pink polyester chiffon - the layers are doubled. (I have since read that the outer layer of chiffon on the screen used Jeannie pants was pink rayon chiffon, and the inner layer was a sheer nude colored chiffon or lining material. In any case the layers need to be doubled in order to provide more coverage).


Base Wig: Revlon Elara. A few wefts were seam ripped off of the elastic near the center top skin cap to create an opening to pull my own ponytail through. I then put my own hair in a bun on top of this wig. The bangs were trimmed a bit to fit my face. The back of the wig is styled into a french twist.

Ponytail: Tempt-Tousled by Tress Allure Remove the jaw clip. Add wig combs and an elastic draw string if they are not present. Place the wig over your bun (secure with some long bobby pins/roller pins) and make a ponytail.

Braided Bun: Revlon Pony Switch (27") This is braided, and wrapped loosely around the bun on top of the head.
