Bnei Brak, Israel
I made this costume for my son for Purim, the Jewish equivalent of the carnival or Halloween, celebrated around February/March.
I wanted a costume that is somewhat similar to normal clothes, so it would be comfy enough for a 3 years old who moves constantly. He loved it, and actually still wears it occasionally around the house.
The pattern was BWOF 1.2010.143/147 for the vest and the pants (the shirt is RTW), and it was great and fun to sew, though the directions for the waistband could have been clearer.
