The boy celebrated literacy in school and had to dress up as his favorite story book character and take the book to school. He decdided on Nate The Great. I had a clearance sheet I bought that didn't match any of the other ones, so close but two different of shades tan. Well it was super cheap so I kept it around and I'm so glad I did. I took the sheet and shirt pattern and came up with the trench. I took a sun hat pattern and modified the brim to have the detective hat. I love the hat, it is my favorite part. He said all his teachers loved it. That's what I love to hear.
