This Vintage 1980’s Kids Clown Costume Sewing Pattern is perfect for Halloween, Costume Parties, or dress up. Features Elastic at neck, wrists and ankles. The oversize either boy or girl costume is Ruffled at the neck and includes instruction on making the pom poms. The pattern does not include sizes but I think because it’s “self-drafted” you could adjust it easily enough as you cut it out. Adding or subtracting in the length. Because it’s oversize there’s plenty of room around. From the pictures it looks like it will fit school age children. Pattern directions are pretty straight forward and include pictures as well as written directions.

Happy customers said this: ****This pdf listing is what all downloads should be like....fast, easy, exactly what I was expecting! In the middle of making this cute bed now and instructions may be vintage, but it was a good choice! Will be back to check out more crochet patterns.
****Can't wait to start this. Easy to read and understand. Should be a nice quick project my kitty will love!
****I was looking for a pattern which could be a picnic blanket rather than a throw / afghan for a bed. I liked the look of this pattern and now I've read it I really like it as it is completely different to other patterns I own already.
****High quality item and very quick delivery! Thanks!
So great and easy to follow!
