Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates Costume Tutorial

"Oh Coconuts!"
I hear you have a problem.
Your little one wants to be, no has to be, Jake from the Disney show Jake and the Neverland Pirates for Halloween.
You go to all the costume stores and soon realize they don't make that costume.
Don't panic.
Here's a simple tutorial to make your little man into a pirate in no time.

And not just any pirate...
Jake the Neverland Pirate.

The goods-
white shirt: Children's resale shop $1
red bandanna: already had (but I think you can buy them at Michaels)
blue pants: garage sale $0.50
black (adult) t-shirt- my dad's
brown boots- his sister's old boots (from Target)

Step 1-
Cut off the sleeves of your shirt (if it is long sleeved) and cut some slits to make it look old

Also cut a "v" shape out of the collar.
Then I used some black embroidery floss to stitch it up in a criss cross pattern

Step 2-
Cut the bottom off an old black t shirt and then cut it to make one long strip. I used this to tie around his waist.

Step 3:
Dana from MADE has an awesome vest tutorial that I used for the base of Jake's vest then I just added the collar, some trim and buttons and voila...
the perfect Jake vest!

Ta da!
Put it on your little Pirate and start looking for some hidden treasure!

And be sure to check back tomorrow to see how we made Pirate Izzy's costume and pixie dust bag.

Hi there,

I absolutely LOVE this Jake vest!! This si by far the best Jake costume I have seen on line. I wantched the tutorial on how to make the vest frome DANA made it and I think I can acomplish that, but can you please give me a better idea on how you attached the collar to make it a pirate vest as opposed to a western vest. I am so unsure of myself when it comes to these things and need to have my hand held a little. Thanks so much in advance for your guidence!

My kids are going to be PIrate Jake and Izzy this Halloween and I'm so glad I found your link on Pinterest. I wasn't sure what to do about Jake's vest but I'm definitely going to use your tutorial! Your kids look adorable and I love their outfits... so much better than the packaged/cheapy outfits Jake & Izzy costumes from Target.
