One of my closest girlfriends doesn’t have the slightest interest in “DIY,” but she LOVES Halloween and appreciates a handmade costume for her little boy, Easton. This means that at least once a year, I get to try my hand at “boy” stuff! This year, Mickey Mouse was in order for this cutie. Easton wore his favorite mouse ears, a store-bought white collared shirt and a pair of Addie’s black leggings along with the sewn pieces.
- I used Burda 9671 for the jacket. I had a really hard time following the pattern instructions and ultimately abandoned them altogether, but the jacket turned out fine in the end (good for a costume, not so much for church).
- I used this tutorial for the bow tie. I used fleece to line it because I wanted it to have a nice puffy costume feel. The tutorial was a cinch to follow, I’d highly recommend it.
- I started with this tutorial for the suspenders, but made both straps connect at the center back with just one suspender clip. Another great tutorial.
- For the shorts, I just followed a simple shorts pattern and then used fusible, double-sided interfacing to add two white ovals on the front. So cute!!
- I also made some little yellow booties to slip over Easton’s shoes; I think the booties totally pull the whole look together.
Isn’t he the cutest thing? I’m so blessed to have my girls grow up alongside the children of my closest friends!

I would love a costume like this for my little ones first birthday. How long did it take you to make it?

In love with this little costume! I am horrible at sewing. I could probably make (well try my best! Ha) everything but the jacket. Do you still have it and I could purchase it??
Who can make this? I do not have a sewing machine and want this original looking outfit instead of the not so cute fake looking costumes they have out there. Please let me know.
Hi Lacy, I’m sorry – I don’t have a resource to offer, but I think you could put together the look yourself – check thrift stores for a black coat, then add a white shirt underneath. You can probably find plain red shorts somewhere – cut some circles out of felt and hot glue them on the front of the shorts. Then, you just need a yellow bow tie – I bet you could find one online somewhere or hire someone on etsy that makes boy’s bow ties. Good luck!!
Hi! – I’ve been looking for Mickey outfits for a long time, and this is by far my fave!! – great job!!
Would you mind sharing how you made the booties? Super cute!
Hi Anali, Thanks! I cut two boot shapes out of felt and sewed together down the front seam and back seam. Then I cut an oval for the bottom and sewed it to the boot shape – does that make sense? I just made them large enough that they could slip over shoes. I may have also folded down the top opening and added some elastic to the casing.
Does anyone know where I can get this in a size 2t-3t
