Mr Punch Clothes

Simplicity pattern no. 9800 (Adults' clown costume and hat) in red velvet and yellow nylon satin (otherwise red canvas or another material heavy enough to sew the cabling into the inside). We made pattern 1 with the following adaptions: shortened the trousers to fit below the knee; omitted the ruff; omitted the pom poms; left the front open and put press studs to convert it into a jacket; opened up the centre back seam to insert a tailored hump and padding; gathered the base of the jacket, added a frill around the bottom and a yellow satin belt; added various bits of braid and embroidery; glued black diamonds to the chest and sleeves in the places the LEDs would be visible.
