The pumpkin and Dalmation costumes are so sweet and easy to make! They come in five sizes – 6 months, 1, 2, 3 and 4. Ribbon is inserted through the front and back of the casing at the top of the body shape and tied on one side. The bottom of the body shape has an elastic casing. The pumpkin hat has a three dimensional stem and leaf. The Dalmation hat has floppy ears (Dalmation body shape and hat are photographed on the last page of the instructions). Ribbon ties on hat are optional.

Instructions are included to make a hat and body shape for both costumes. Coordinating t-shirts (long or short sleeves), turtlenecks or onesies along with tights or pants can be worn underneath the body shape to complete the costumes. Several pieces of crumpled tissue paper can be placed inside the costume to give the pumpkin shape more fullness if desired.

Fleece and ultra suede fabrics were used for the sample costumes. You can also use medium weight cotton or satin fabrics if you want to make lighter weight costumes. The Dalmation costume can be made into a puppy costume, by using tan fabric for the body shape and hat, along with black fabric for the ears.

This PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns for the top of the hat, pumpkin leaf, and Dalmation ears; rectangle measurements for body shape, side of hat and pumpkin stem; a detailed materials list; clear instructions written in English and step-by-step photographs.
