I'm getting started on my Halloween costume early this year! I'll be going as a Lost Boy, from Peter Pan. Not any particular version, just something I made up in my head.
I got a couple yards of faux fur from Joanne's, the white shag kind. I want to make a short cape, one that ends just above my elbows with a hood and some wolf ears. I'm still a novice seamstress and am nervous about trying anything without a pattern...
I found this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387511.0
Featuring a furry hat. I'll probably reference that for the ears.
Any tips or suggestions for patterns I can use or what things I'll need to look out for when tackling this project?
One thing I'm wondering is, does it matter what kind of fabric I use for the lining? I didn't want to do anything too terribly warm since I live in Florida...
Thanks for the input!
