Peter Pan Costume..

2nd March is going to be Peter Pan day at school in aid of The Great Ormond Street Hospital and the boys have to go in Costume.. L wanted to be Peter Pan, and J asked to be Captain Hook. Since I had lots of green fabric I started on Peter Pan first (placing an order for red and purple fabric in the meantime!)

I wanted a V-neck T-shirt with a collar to be Peter Pan.. the fabric is MUCH greener not idea why it looks blue in this photo! I lengthened the top to tunic length and added a jagged hem and did the same for the sleeves.

I did not finish the neckline properly - it is only a quick fancy dress costume. I'll still write a review as I liked the pattern enough to make it properly next time!

Pattern Description:

V-neck shirt with a collar and double-layer look to the sleeves and hem, designed for knits.

Pattern Sizing:


Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

No - but that is because I was changing it to use the pattern a a basis for a Peter Pan Costume!

Were the instructions easy to follow?

They were Ottobre instructions....

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I wanted a V-neck T-shirt with a Collar to create a Peter Pan shirt.

Fabric Used:

Cotton Jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I left off the trim on the sleeve and hem

I added lots of length and then cut a jagged line for the peter pan effect on the sleeves and the hem

I did not bind the neckline properly, I just put on the collar and then folded back the seam allowance on the V section

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I would sew this up again properly as a "real" T-shirt if my sons ask me to.


I am really pleased with this as a basis for the Peter Pan costume... off to make hat, shoes and trousers now!!
