KJ9 was invited to a Fairytale Book character birthday party for one of her best friends, and decided she wanted to go as a Dalmation. She was absolutely determined that I would make her a dalmation costume. Um, slight problem though, as I’ve never done pants or a hoodie.
So, I did what anyone would do without a pattern, and winged it. I took too small and well loved pants and hoodie, and chopped them up. I then *tried* to make a larger pattern. That was where the *winging it* part came in.
So , after some improvising, since I ran out of fabric, and my pattern wasn’t quite right, I managed to product this in less than 2.5 hours.
I was VERY lazy, and only used white thread too. The rest of the errors are for me to know about, and no one else to notice 😉
A few more pics. One of the back and one of KM7 petting the Dalmation
Being made out of suedecloth and microfleece, I can’t imagine it was very comfortable to wear in the hot weather we had this weekend. However, the girl was quite pleased about it, if you couldn’t tell from the pics.
