Since my husband’s name means “dragon” in Chinese, I decided that in honor of her daddy, I would dress my baby up as a pink dragon for her first Halloween :). The pattern is McCalls M6185. I found the size runs rather large. I omitted the fusible fleece in the spikes, and didn’t do the gloves. Some of the sewing instructions took a bit of time to figure out, and there are a lot of pieces to cut out, so keep that in mind if you take on this pattern!
Outer: pink polkadot fleece (JoAnn)
Lining & contrast: felt
Notions: elastic, velcro
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
