Red gabardine fabric
Red hat with white feather
For Halloween 2011, we did a Peter Pan theme. Our 8-year-old son chose to be Captain Hook and he was amazing!
To make his coat, I took bright red gabardine fabric. I never use patterns so I just laid him on the fabric and traced around his body. I made big bell sleeves extra long so I could cuff them up. I added yellow ribbon, sewn around the edge of the coat front. I added white lace to the sleeves.
I made the cravat (the thing around his neck) out of white fabric and snapped it around the back of his neck. The sash is made from gold fabric and I sewed a loop at the side for his sword to hang. We found purple pants at a thrift store and we tucked them into his socks. I used white ribbon to tie around the top of the socks and bow in the back.
I drew a mustache using black eyeliner. We gave in and bought an official Captain Hook hat from the Disney Store. He used a hook and sword to complete the outfit. It was perfect!!!
