We bought a pair of long john's from Walmart and I tea dyed it to turn them from white to cream to give it an aged look. The fabric I used was from a project that bombed. It was a stretchy fabric that had natural wrinkles to it. I cut the strips to be from 2" - 4" wide.
For the top, I had Ethan wear the long john's as I wrapped the fabric around him and safety pinned it into place. Then I tacked them into place with needle and thread. When everything was how I wanted it, I stitched through all the thickness down the sides of the shirt.
For the pants, I unstitched the inseam and then stitched the pieces all over the pants just as I did the top. I then stitched the inseam again.
We simply wrapped his head with strips to complete Ethan's mummy look!
