Giant onsie costume for 17 year old son.  Go figure he wants to wear for Halloween but not for the picture on by blog. 
I found this fabric on the dollar walmart shelf.  I love that it was black and white stripes.  He is 17 he is always getting into trouble. I thought about saying jail baby on the bib but I'm Trouble worked out just great.  I am sorry I didn't take pictures of the process.  I just folded one of his shirts in half and laid it on the fold of the fabric twice on for front and back.  I left the back piece really long and then when he tried it on I know how long to make the flap.  for the front I just made it about 10 inched longer then the original shirt that I used.  sewing the two side was the easy part.   I just had to match the stripes before I cut it out then they matched easy to sew. It was so easy.  and when he puts it on well you get the picture.

update he let me take his picture in his costume.
Happy Halloween
