Yup I am finally almost finished with the Peter Pan costume! Nothing like a bribe of promising to work on the costume to get a kid to stop faking sick right??
I started out today by sewing the elastic into a loop.
Then sewed it to the leggings.
Aft that I folded it over and sewed it down, and rolled the bottoms up to hem them. I also cut the edges of the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt and sewed up the hat, and finished the belt. I still need to attach the feather (which I will probably hand sew and use glue) and maybe elastic or string to help keep the hat on.
Even though he is exited to be Peter Pan (he probably just wants the candy) he has decided on next years costume, Duck Dynasty (a camo suit with a fake beard) and my daughter still has a list a mile long but I plan to make whatever she decides on. My rule of thumb is once I buy a costume or stuff to make it that is what you are no longer allowed to change your mind about your costume.
