Sock Hop Poodle Skirt

One of my kiddo’s favorite time of year is right now! Because it’s Fall time? No. The first month of school over? No. Give up? This time of year is one of their favorite times of year because it is time to search for that perfect Halloween costume! Are you in the same boat? However, the older my kids get I am noticing it is a little more challenging to find that perfect costume in the store! Janica from JaniJo is here sharing a most fabulous costume that instead of going out and searching the stores for, she just whipped it up at home and made an adorable costume for her little girl that is beyond cute, beyond adorable and beyond perfect! I am in love with this poodle skirt and the idea of creating that perfect costume from scratch! Enjoy!

Halloween is ‘spooky’ close! So I am sharing a quick-sew costume to make the upcoming holiday more of a ‘treat’ than a ‘trick’.

This idea came to me when I saw that The Ribbon Retreat now carries craft felt!
And it comes in SO many dreamy colors….

Crafting Felt

For this poodle skirt I used: 1 yard of craft felt in aqua, 1 yard of craft felt in black, 2″ wide elastic for the waistband, and a basic black Color Wave Ribbon Mix.


Print off the ‘poodle pattern’ below or use one of your own.

PLEASE NOTE: the craft felt is sold in a 12″ width. I would assume this width to be suitable up to a size 4T.

Next, I made a Spike Bow using this great TRR tutorial! The instructions are SO simple to follow.

Finally, to complete the costume, I used a ‘fairytale tutu’ sold through The Ribbon Retreat. That extra ‘fluff’ really adds to the fun of the Sock Hop Skirt!
