Well, actually he’s supposed to be Dom Pedron II, a Brazilian emperor. He’s doing a cultural report on Brazil for school and needed me to make a last minute costume. At first I thought, “Why didn’t he choose to be Pele the soccer player? I know there’s a jersey and shorts upstairs.” But then I thought I would just have fun with it.
I started off with a clearance flannel shirt for $3.00.
I bought a few plastic gems and used felt from my stash to make these medals.
These fringed shoulder pads really make the costume.
I love that I can sew for my kids. They think I can do anything. I’ll take that for as long as I can!
