  • sweater vest (my boys wore these from Easter, they’re from Children’s Place)
  • newspaper cap (like old-fashioned golfers used to wear)
  • long socks
  • cotton material to match sweater (for the pants)

How to make a Golfer Costume:

  • Step 1. Find a sweater vest. I found the sweater vest in my boys closet. I thought it would be perfect for a golfer. When I showed my husband he immediately said “Payne Stewart”!

    At the time, he was a current PGA player who dressed like an old-fashioned golfer. He has since passed away. We just used a simple white shirt underneath the sweater vest. You can choose long sleeves or short sleeves.
  • Step 2. Add a hat for the costume. I also had adorable newsboy caps (similar to these) my boys wore during the summer. They fit perfectly with this golfer idea! Choose from a green cap, grey or any color you want.
  • Step 3. Add pants to complete the costume. All I needed were some cute little pants to finish off the outfit! I took the sweater vests I had and headed to the fabric store to find some fabric with a similar pattern. I was lucky enough to find two different types of fabric!

    I used a pattern similar to this Butterick Pattern and just made the legs a bit shorter, so they would look like knickers. I also put elastic in the bottom of the legs so they would stay up.

It is just that easy to make this costume. I was able to create golfer costumes for my boys with just a tad more than they already had in their closet.
