A News Boy cap and Vest made out of an old pair of men’s trousers.
My son’s class had to come dressed in the style of clothing from the early 1900’s.
I also got some pants from the op-shop and cut them off and put elastic through close to the knee. Bought some super over the knee socks and a pair of shoes from the op-shop.
I thought he looked super cute!
I got the pattern for the cap from the clevergirl blog ( see Credit) and I drew up the vest myself. ( it’s not lined seeing as though it was for costume)
