This costume may always be my favorite. Amelia Earhart costume, plane and all!!
I had so much fun designing this entire costume.
The jacket was a thrift store find. I took the patch on the right off and sewed on a solid color knit around the bands.
I made the aviator cap, the goggles, pants, a scarf, and boots. (The fabulous boots pattern is from here.)
I was especially particular how I wanted to design the plane. I really wanted to model it after Earhart’s red Lockheed Vega plane.
Boxes, red duct tape, a wagon, red paint, and my little helper.
I used my Cricut Explorer to cut the letters and decals. (I LOVE this machine. I have many Cricut projects I need to share.)
The propeller was a bit of a challenge. I didn’t take in consideration the need to navigate the wagon with the handle. I had to make several adjustments and ended up making it so the propeller could be taken off if needed.

We went to a Halloween party and our Amelia Earhart won best kids costume.
