The Bo Peep costume is made up of 3 parts – the skirt, the top and the bonnet.
Bo Peep skirt (circle skirt)
To draw your skirt pattern (2 circles) use a pencil and a piece of string.
Take waist measurements of your child.
To get the radius of your circles use the following:
R1= (waist measurement + 2cm) / 2π = (waist measurement + 2cm)/ 6.28
R2= R1 + length of skirt
Make the casing for the elastic
Pin to right side of skirt and sew around
Secure the elastic with a couple rows of stitches
Topstitch all the way around
Hem the bottom of the skirt
Bo Peep Top
Use a long stitch (for the gather on the sleeve)
Pin sleeves into place
Sew a few rows of elastic thread at the bottom of the sleeves

For the visor, cut 2 pieces of cotton fabric and 2 of fusible interfacing.
For the hat, cut 1 piece of the cotton fabric.
Make a small hem at the bottom of the hat as a casing for the elastic
Thread the elastic through and secure with a few stitches at both ends
With right sides together (interfacing side facing outward) sew the 2 visor pieces together
Before turning the visor piece over, make incisions all the way around up to the stitching
Turn visor right sides out and topstitch
With a long stitch, sew around the hat and gather
Adjust your gather to fit around the visor and sew around.
