I’ve made my best friend’s daughters’ Halloween costumes for the last 4 years. (You can check out year 1, year 2 and year 3 costume posts as well.) This year we were both pretty darn excited when they picked Snoopy and Woodstock as their costumes of choice.
To be perfectly honest, I had no idea how I was going to make the costumes at first. I did some research online, but it turns out this isn’t a very popular costume choice documented on the internet. I was thinking I could crochet some hats (like these), or maybe go the hooded sweatshirt route (like this), but then when organizing my sewing patterns (see that project here) I came across this vintage Simplicity 5739 sewing pattern that my husband’s aunt gave me!
The girls are 3, so I wasn’t sure how this sizing option for sizes 2-4 would work. The costumes ended up being a bit big, but I was hoping for that much more than if they had been too small. The absolute best part was how thrilled the girls were about them.
Obviously I made some adaptations from the pattern to include the puppy ears, spots and the bird feathers (shout out to their dad for the idea to have the wings under the arms!).
And of course here’s Andie, slacking on the job again. Cutest worst assistant ever.
