Step 1: Preperation
things that you will need:
-sewing machine (sewing by hand is possible but it will be much harder and need more time)
-hard cloth (a type of cloth that will allow the collar to stand up straight)
-button (as unique as possible)
-white long-sleeved shirt
Step 2: Imagination
the first thing you have to do is to measure the child's measurement.
-the circumference of the waist, neck(give an additional space so that the kid won't be chocked to death), and shoulder
then you have to think about how the costume will looked like. I've drawn mine(look at the picture).
Step 3: Paper pattern (vest)
the next step is to make a model of the vest from news papers. you have to be extra careful because it can be ripped easily.
use pare glue to stick to news paper together.
don't forget to test it on the child and make sure it is not to loose or tight.
after you make sure the size,break the paper vest into 3 pieces and put the cutted newspaper on top of the black cloth, trace the line and cut it.
after cutting all three pieces fold all the side around 5 millimeter / 0.5 centimeter so the pieces of cloth will be more neat.
turn the pieces of cloth and assemble all 3 pieces and sew it with a sewing machine.
don't for get to put buttons and make button holes.
