Here is one
From Whitney Sews a free pattern here
The interfacing for the hat brim is this kind
From Sew Mama Sew -she tells you what needle to use and other useful information -here
You can also use felt to make the logos and either glue them on or sew them on.
I have link on the bottom to print out logos if you want to do it that way.
The shirt can be any long sleeve knit shirt that you can get at most clothing stores. You can also make your own.
Like this pajama pattern from Simplicity 1505
Here's a pattern for overall from Burda 9464
I didn't spend to much time on shoes but you could cover a pair of shoes to match your character.
From Fabric.com there is a tutorial on how to cover shoes here
One last thing. The mustache! You can always pencil it on or could buy it. You could also make it.
here for the hat and the mustache
I bought the dollar store knit gloves. You could also buy ones specific for the costume but as long as they are white.
Enjoy making your costume.

I found this glass display box at Goodwill. This was perfect for storing my sewing machine feet.
All of the feet have a picture photo behind it to name the foot. It is also color coded for which sewing machine it is used for.
I found this video on pinterest by Cynthia Dickerson on how to organize your sewing machine feet.
The Domestic Diva has a whole organization for your sewing including notions right here

This is where I started on the cuffs for the sleeves. I used thicker interfacing on this yellow fat quarter. Then I used red trim and sewed it on. This has two layers.
I had some white buttons that I added to the cuff and then made a button hole for the cuff. So it works along with the sleeve underneath it.
I will show you on my next post how the costumes looked on them once I get pictures.

With Heat BondHere's a pic of the first time I did them with fabric glue and then I did the heat bond because the fabric glue sucked.
I will post the rest of Jessie's costume in my next post.
