My grandmother loves to help with costumes so she jumped at the chance with her best friend to take over this costume fully.
Overall, it was pretty easy to put together once we figured it all out.
1. Blue shirt (you can add buttons to it but I like to keep my shirts so I can reuse them for other costumes)
2. Blue collar
Measure blue fabric around your head to make sure it will fit over. Pack safety pins to attach it to your shirt so it would fly away (I put one in the bow and it was fine. You may need some for the back side too)
Add yellow ribbon to the trim if you want.
3. Red bow
My grandma stuffed it with plastic but there's no need to do that. You can just tie red ribbon there
4. Bottoms should be white
I used my tutu from my Bacchus costume during wine and dine. Here is the tutorial for that.
You can also do white shorts or skirt but it can be hard to find!
5. The hat
This is the most elaborate part of the costume. She took a white hat and paint the bill of it orange and cut out the eyes out of felt and glued it to the hat. From there she outlined the eyes. She then added a black ribbon to the top.
Feel free to have a blue hat with black ribbon as well.
To make it suitable for winter, add a white shirt under your blue shirt and. Pants under your bottoms
I forgot to pack my yellow tights but they would really cap off the costume.
And that's it! It's a bit more involved but I love the costume and will be able to use it in the future.
