DIY Captain America USO Girl Costume- No Sew!

About: I'm a Freelance Costume Designer, and crafting and sharing my designs are what I LOVE to do! :D

Captain America is one of my favorite super heroes and when I saw the USO Girls come out, I just had to replicate the costume! I wanted to show you all how you can make a lovely costume for cheap that is customizable to your measurements and barely requires sewing experience. People have made this costume for halloween, comic conventions, dapper day at disney and fourth of july!

Tag me @heymeylynn So that I can see all your recreations :)
