My oldest had to be a colonial townsperson for his part in the 5th grade special at his school.  Sooo, mom had to make a costume (because their solution for none crafty people was awful and well I sew).  I was determined that I would only use my stash for his costume, so I used some green flannel for the vest and pants.  I made the pattern by pinning newpaper to him and cutting the shape I wanted, LOL. 

I reused a shirt I had made for a previous costume this year by adding extra fabric and some lace to the sleeves and adding that bib type thing to the front of the shirt.  We had the hat, but it was a pirates hat, so I just took a piece of brown fabric and pinned it onto the hat to cover the skull and crossed bones.  Then double stick taped "buckles" to the shoes that I made out of thin cardboard and gold paint.  Oh and he's wearing a pair of my knee high socks and a white t-shirt underneath.

My son has had a heck of a year with costumes this year.  He's had 3 costumes for school and NONE of them were for Halloween.  If you want the whole saga, you can check out my blog.
