I made up a different pattern for each boy. I started with the pants and completed the pattern on one side and after it dried for a day or so, did the same thing on the other side. This took several days and A LOT of glitter glue.
I then did the same pattern for the jackets.
"Where did you find bolero jackets," you ask?
I didn't find them anywhere.
I purchased three black sweatshirts, cut them, and put interfacing on the inside to make them stiffer.
It was a project. But I kind of enjoyed it. Needless to say my family ate microwavable corn dogs for a week.
Then I bought red fabric and sewed ties and cummerbunds. I don't sew so I promise you this was super easy.
All the work was worth it in the end. The boys looked super cute and still dress up in these costumes often.
