American Flag Creator Betsy Ross Costume – 2013 Style

Betsy Ross is back! Our family always dresses as a theme and this year was our favorite city: Philadelphia! I chose Betsy Ross with a modern spin… in pants! This was the easiest and least expensive costume ever.

That wasn’t the goal, but it just worked out that way. The pants and sweater were already in my closet and I embellished them with white duct tape. The “needle and thread” are a red feather boa I already had and a cardboard tube covered in silver duct tape. The wig was purchased at a costume shop but I kinda love it and think it may get used again!

If you need a nice colonial costume with a modern, sexy spin, try Betsy Ross!
