I was able to use most of the original hems for this 'restyle', which made things easier. I chopped the bottom parts off the legs and stitched these together to make the pants, which meant I was able to keep the ribbing as it was. I made the extra purchase of a pair of second-hand black track-suit pants, which turned out to be one of the most excellent decisions I have made in regards to this whole leopard-print-onesie debacle. I was able to just cut the waistband of the track pants and sew it onto the new pants, with the addition of a leopard tail too. I took the legs in a little at the sides, but made the pants in what I assume is about a size three. So that she can wear them for longer. yeah, I don't plan on either of us getting sick of this outfit anytime soon.
The jacket was pimp-squeaks too. I cut the arms off the original onesie, trimmed off the excess fabric, and then reattached them so that they were the right length for my kid. I rehemmed the jacket to a shorter length, made the hood a little smaller (I know, a hood, this onesie was every kind of perfect, other than in size), and added ears. All up, one of the easiest projects ever. So if you find yourself with a spare adult-sized onesie, and you're in need of a kid costume, you know what to do.
Garland's costume was pieced together with remnants, which is quite obvious when you look at it. You don't even need to be close up. Let's just say that he wouldn't convince any of the other jungle animals. But ears and a tail, does an outfit really need anything else, for it to be the cutest thing in the world? I think we all know that the answer to that is 'no'.
