All children love animals, and when it comes tocarnival, matinee or just a festive evening, no child will refuse to dress up in the costume of a beloved animal.

Algorithm for creating:
Before you make a dog suit, select the appropriate patterns for the overalls. It should be slightly baggy. Measure:
- chest girth;
- Girth of the waist;
- length of sleeve;
- length of backrest;
- length of the leg.
Based on these measurements, sew a Lycra overall of the chosen color. In the course of work cut out the details of the pattern (circle them on the fabric with chalk or soap, leaving the allowance for the seam).

For the boy you need to sew shorts or trousers from thethe same fabric, from which the upper part of the suit is made. Some masters for tailoring trousers choose a material with a print "bone", which corresponds to the dog theme. The girl's skirt must also be either fur or tulle. Make a pack of tulle, and your daughter will turn into a circus poodle!
The breast has the form of a fur collar, short behind and slightly longer - in front. You can wear it on a turtleneck, without a vest.
- Fur sleeves.
Take two wide ribbons, attach them to thempieces of fur material, tie at the wrists of the child. This will create a feeling of fluffy paws. The same can be done on the ankles. Please note: a good alternative to ribbons are the wide elastic bands.
They are sewn on standard patterns. Attach ears to your head with hairpins. You can also fasten them to a hoop or hat.
The dog tail is sewn to the shorts / pants / skirtor attached to a separate belt. Pay attention: the tail should not be paper, otherwise the child risks tearing it off.
