This year, Aldous was the white rabbit. I used leftover sheep's fun-fur from last year, and the same pattern I used for the sheep. I made this with sleeves but it was too bulky under the jacket so I cut them off. It has a zip front.
I cut the sleeves off so that the finished part of the seam was intact. Less scratchy, maybe.

The pink part of the ear is appliqued to the front ear piece before the ears are sewn together. This is felt.
The jacket is a version of my favorite shirt pattern for Aldous. I made a 3T to ease the fit over the bunny suit. I made the sleeves 3/4 length so I could add the ruffle and trim.
here's the ruffle! I have a great big spool of this lace, and no matter how much I use, there seems to always be a full spool. It's very stiff and must be for home-decor use. I added a bit of scrap trim to the end of sleeve about the ruffle.
The back. I cut the "coat tails" so they were on either side of the tail.
the tail is a homemade pom pon from white baby yarn. Very fluffy!

Fluffy tail! or as Aldous said "fwuffy tay-all"
