{Halloween Costume} 50’s Poodle Skirt

Poodle SkirtSo there is almost a week till Halloween and I realized that I haven’t shared our Halloween costumes yet!  What was I thinking?  Sometimes, I don’t even know! 

My husband had this great idea for us to dress up as 50’s people.  Well, my little one was the only one that ended up actually having a costume . . . but that’s another story (pretty much messed up my skirt . . .)  I think it turned out great.  It was a little long, and there was an adorable scarf, but she would have nothing to do with it . . .

I didn’t make my own tutorial, but found a few great ones out there. 

eHow:  How to Make a Child’s Poodle Skirt

Tulsa World:  No Sew Poodle Skirt

eHow:  How to Cut and Sew a Poodle Skirt

YouTube:  Easy Sew Circle Skirt

I used a combination of all of these, my hubs helped with the math.  The video was a help, I’m a visual learner!

I used felt, easy to work with, no hemming!

Sequins make up the poodle collar and leash, I bought a roll at Hancock Fabric for super cheap.  Glue gunned the sequins on.


For the poodle, I traced this appliqué onto black felt, cut it out, glue gunned it onto the skirt, and glue gunned black pom poms onto the poodle.  I also added a little pink bow to the poodle ear ear.
