Pink Dragon Baby Costume

(Originally posted 10/27/2012)

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!



(10/18/18 – Edit: this costume has been used for YEARS in our home and it’s even been loaned out a bunch of times!! I definitely got my mileage out of this one! – also, the hood is supposed to be tucked inside the body of the suit. We realized that *after* photos were taken, of course!)
