The Bo Peep costume is made of three 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

Bo-costume-1

Take waist measurements of your child.
To get the radius of your circles use the following:
R1=  (waist measurement + 2 cm) / 2π
=  (waist measurement + 2cm) / 6.28
R2=  R1 + length of skirt
