My four-year-old requested a Tigger costume for Halloween and I was happy to take on the challenge. I cloned a ready-to-wear hooded onesie with front zip to draft my own pattern, adding ears, stripes, and a tail. The suit is made of polar fleece – perfect for a chilly Halloween in northern Canada – with black rib knit cuffs at the wrists and ankles. The stripes are attached with fusible webbing and floral wire threaded through the tail and upward through a channel in the centre back seam allowance gives the tail some extra *bounce*. Mittens, also made from polar fleece, keep hands warm and toasty. The self-drafted mask pulls the costume together with Tigger’s winning grin. Despite the pandemic, this trick-or-treater had a Halloween full of “bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!”
