Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing
Sizing Children
Style Whimsical, Cute on

What materials did you use? McCall's pattern M5963 view D with the hood from view A a fuzzy boa and two cat ears on

What are you most proud of? Everyone who sees the costume in person just loves it - the boa is the best part and the micro fur is so soft! on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be scared let your imagination run wild! Instead of adding a tail I choose to let the extra length of the boa be it - I looped it and pinned it in place and everyone just loves it - it is so fluffy ( a few twists help too) - his Mommy insisted we needed fluff in the ears so I cut some off of the end of the boa and used that for the fluff. As always Mommy was right the fluff in the ears did help! on

The only reason I gave it a 3 for difficulty is because you have to know how to read a pattern and sew.
