My father-in-law plays Santa Claus in his town and my husband and I wanted to provide him with a nice costume. So I took deep red pan velvet, lined it with a faux knit fur for added warmth, and trim. I added bead trim & ribbon trim around the edges for an added touch. The made a velvet green vest to wear underneath.
This is one of the nicest Santa outfits I've seem. Your choice of fabric and trims really make it special. What a sweet father-in-law you must have to want to bring joy to the hearts of the children in his town.
I like your effort
