One that the easiest components of this costume is the repurposing of one old button-up shirt together the cassock. Rather of having actually to bland a basic gown / cassock - us took among Dad"s old shirt and also cut the collar and also sleeves turn off (shorter). We then offered the "hot glue" sewing method to kind a false seam in the sleeves. Check out picture. The cassock is climate tied about the belt to form gown-like gathers making use of the blue rope. The shining cover end the cassock can finest be described as a huge "football" form of taffeta (with a feet in the middle for the head).
