Now that you’ve made your own saddle shoes….you’re gonna need a poodle skirt to go with it! It’s the give a mouse a cookie book, but with felt, and pom pom trim, and all the cute patches you can find!
Seriously, these skirts are so easy and fast to put together.
It’s the classic Poodle Skirt.
Made from the classic Circle Skirt (and baby circle skirt here).
And they make an adorable ensemble costume, for all ages.
The best part is that they’re made from felt or fleece, so you’ve got lots of color options, and a fabric that holds shape really well.
Then throw it together with semi-homemade saddle shoes, some accessories (links below), and you’ve got a ’50s girl costume ready to go!
AWESOME twirl factor of course.
All the step-by-step info is in my video here.

And don’t stop there. You can find so many cute patches online. Have fun mixing it up with a Flamingo skirt? Pineapple shirt? Gold elastic? YES to all of it! Clara requested a Unicorn skirt, with gold magic blowing from the horn. I love it.
This pic of Lucy and her darling friend Remi just makes me smiles. They met in kindergarten and they’re still the best of friends today in 8th grade.
Okay here’s the supply list if you need it….
