Olivia the Pig Costume

What do you get when you combine a white sailor collar, black knot, red puffed-sleeve dress and…
Wool felt pig ears? A darling OLIVIA the Pig costume, of course!
I had so much fun recreating the classic dress from this smart and funny children’s book character. The absolutely adorable child who will be donning this costume this year will also wear those oh-so-cool black and white striped tights to complete the look.
This one makes me wish I had a three-year-old girl. Today. Okay, actually next week. Just to dance her around in this fun gettup and win a bunch of costume contests. Maybe one day! For now I’ll just enjoy the stars and then put it in the mail;)
**I no longer make this costume to sell**

    Just came across this, looking for the perfect Olivia costume. We have the leggings, but need the dress and ears and this dress is the best one I've seen. It's adorable. Are you taking Halloween '11 orders? My email is allisonclark1977@att.net

    Hi!! My four-year old is obsessed with Olivia and has the whole outfit minus the ears. I saw that your halloween schedule is full, but on the off-chance that you could just do the ears, please contact me at katelynn17@hotmail.com.
    Thank you!!!

    Hi! Love your Olivia costume! I'm a first grade teacher and every year the staff plans themed costumes for our Halloween parade. This year we are going to be story book characters. I know you are all tied up for the month but I guess I have wishful thinking and i am hoping you could squeeze in a pair of your adorable Olivia ears (adult). Please let me know if it works out. Thanks Angie angie.cordova.k12@gmail.com

    Ohhhh boy, as I nervously scroll through these comments, I nervously ask if there is any chance to purchase one of these for Halloween this year? (2012).

      Hi Pegg! Unfortunately, my order schedule for 2012 is booked! I apologize for the inconvenience! Please think of me in the future with custom sewing needs!


  20. Posted September 5, 2012 at 8:44 pm | Permalink

    did you make the pattern for this dress or sbase it off a pattern?
    thinking my little ones would love this!!

      I made the pattern, basing the bodice off of a shirt of my son’s, then winging the skirt and collar. The skirt is a basic circle skirt, gently gathered into the bodice. The collar was sort of tricky, but I basically cut out paper in the shape I wanted the finished sailor collar, then added seam allowances and a velcro tab so it can close over the zipped back. I’m sorry I can’t help more!

    I saw above that you are booked for Halloween ’12, but are you open for after that? My daughter (Olivia) has her first birthday on Nov. 16th & I’ve been looking for a good Olivia dress everywhere! Are you available? If not, I’ll just have to keep your site in my back pocket for anything else I can think of later!

    Is there anyway you could make this costume for my daughter for halloween this year? Or do you think the mom of the little girl you made it for would be willing to sell it? My daughter’s name is Olivia and this is just perfect! She wears an 18mo size. Please let me know!

    I absolutely love the dress. My daughter’s first birthday is this Sept & we’re doing Olivia as the theme since my daughter’s name is Olivia. Are you taking orders? If not, can you give me information on how to make this myself? Hope to hear from you soon. 🙂
