Halloween Costume Contest

In honor of our Soldiers

My little Soldier

I was asked to make an Army costume for one of my grandsons for Halloween, if I could.  I didn’t have a specific pattern for the costume, I just used a basic shirt and pant pattern that I had used many many years ago, then fashioned a hat for him.  I used the camo flannel fabric, so it would be soft, and I found an embroidery design of the Army emblem at “Starbird Designs” that I used for the shirt.  Unfortunately, just before Halloween he broke his leg, so he looked like a wounded vet. After he broke his leg, I had to modify the leg of the pants so it would fit over the cast, so I undid the seam and stitched velcro into the seam allowance on both sides so that the pants could fit over the cast, but then be closed after it was on.
