School was having a 'Mad Science Day' but with only a couple of days notice costume choices were limited. Luckily I found the perfect large men's shirt in a charity shop and set about converting it into a lab coat.
I started by cutting the bottom straight and shortening the sleeves.
I then took in the sides. Using the left over sleeve bits I made square pockets.
I found a great tutorial on Pinterest for making a bow tie, dug out an eye mask from a build-your-own-volcano, added new rubber gloves and a check shirt! Experiment away.
