Yes I know it is early but I have been trying to find a pattern for a babies costume to make a court jester. I have it pretty much figured out how to make it I just don't know how to make the shirt and pants I have never done it before I have done a lot but not that. and free pattern web sites would be great. Thanks

Just use any 2 piece shirt/pants baby pattern. Cut the hem of the shirt and pants into zigzags instead of a straight hem. Since it's a costume, no need to hem. Sew on bells to the points, if you want.

I found two freebies but lost them with a nasty pop-up and being kicked off the internet. However, I found them again! Whew!

This one is no-sew:

And this one requires a little sewing but it's fleece so I don't see what it needs much:

Both seem to avoid the shirt and pants issue by using tights and little capes/big collars...
