Pan Am Stewardess Costume Tips

Here’s an easy way to get the look of a Pan Am Stewardess by making it yourself.

###To get you started we’re providing:

– Pan Am Wings lapel pin pattern. Simply print it out, cut it carefully, and attach it to a piece of heavy paper or cardboard. Then, affix a safety pin and wear your wing on the left side of your jacket over your heart.

– Pan Am Stewardess cap pattern.

РPan Am logo for your flight bag. If you haven’t yet ordered your own Pan Am bag, you can create one by modifying a bowling bag or other large bag.

###And here’s what else you’ll need:

РBlue suit with a jacket and skirt РPan Am Blue is very close to Royal Blue and suits can be found at your local thrift store. (If you’ve got the skills, you can tailor your jacket to accent your ladylike figure, as well as shorten the sleeves and hem the skirt to come just to your knees.)

– White collared shirt – Just spread the collar over the lapels of the suit jacket.

– White gloves – Wear them at mid-arm. Opera length gloves are too long. In a pinch, use shorter gloves, but never longer ones!

РNylons РIn the 1960s, they were not as sheer as they are today. You can emphasize that you’re wearing them by choosing a more opaque style.

– Black low-heeled pumps – The stewardesses of Pan Am were on their feet all day, go for a lower kitten-style heel.

###Hair & Make-up:

– Hair can be easily worn in the upswept style of the 1960s.

РMake-up is light “daytime” make-up. Make it authentic by wearing the official shade “Persian Melon” by Revlon (shade 585).
