Make this easy DIY Bo Peep costume from Disney’s Toy Story 4! It’s cute and easy, and can be made for children or women. It’s great for a Halloween costume or even dressing up for Easter.

My daughter has blonde hair so when I saw Bo Peep I knew it would be a great costume for her. I didn’t want to make the whole costume from scratch because costumes are only worn a couple of times. Luckily, I have an easy DIY so you can make a Bo Peep costume too!

Bo Peep from the fourth movie is essentially wearing the same thing as the first movie, she just doesn’t wear the skirt as a skirt anymore. She has the same black shoes, the shepherd’s crook, pants with ruffles, and her sheep. The new Bo Peep has a pink bow instead of a bonnet and a pink belt.

The villain in this movie is sort of Gabby Gabby which is a costume I made for my other daughter! I also made a Ducky and Bunny costume and a Duke Caboom costume. I love the new characters.

I think the romper with the ruffled legs is my very favorite part. I love the little detail and how it looks when she runs around. We also have two stuffed lambs which we added to the costume for the perfect accessory!

I’m so excited for Halloween costumes this year. It’s so fun when a movie comes out with a bunch of new characters, and I get to create those Halloween costumes in a really easy way so you can make them too.

Make sure that the neckline of the dress is stretchy enough to be pulled from the feet up past the shoulders.

Draw a curved inseam on the inside of the dress There needs to be enough space for the legs, so don’t make it too tight.

Sew along the line with a zigzag stitch. Trim the inner fabric out to create the romper.

Cut 6 pieces of ribbon that are twice the circumference of the leg.

Sew a basting stitch along one side of each ribbon piece.

Pull the threads to gather the ribbon. Gather each ribbon until its the same circumference of the romper leg.

Pin three gathered ribbons to each leg. I left 1 inch in between each ribbon.

Sew the gathered ribbon to each leg. Use a straight stitch and be careful to keep the gathers even.

Trim all the threads.

Install two plastic snaps on each side of the belt.
