Intro: Pan Am Costume
About 5 years ago I found a awesome Pan American World Airways travel bag at a thrift store so I was super excited to be able to use it this year for this costume. Inspired by the Pan Am TV show and so easy to make!!!
Step 1: Getting Ready With the Materials to Sew
White fabric for collar
Pattern for a blazer and skirt

White trim for the hat
1 gold button
... then any fun accessory/prop for that vintage look.
Lay out your pattern for the blazer and the skirt - cut out then sew your 2 basic pieces for the costume. For the white collar, I just used the same pattern piece and cut it out with the white fabric then attached it to the finished jacket - so easy!
Step 2: Making the Signature Hat
Cut out your fabric on the pattern - add the white trim on the outside of the hat and to wing. Once finished add a gold button to your wing on the hat.
Step 3: Finished
You are all done - put on some retro inspired makeup to finish the look and then your ready to go!!!!
Happy Halloween everyone.
