Easy Caveman and Cavewoman Costume Instructions!

Tarzan and Jane or George of the Jungle and Ursula Costume

This is an super easy tutorial. You can have both outfits made in 20-30 minutes. (BETTER FINAL PICTURES TO COME).

Materials needed - animal print fleece about 1 1/2 yards (my mom had left overs from different project), pins, scissors, sewing machine (but easy enough to sew by hand), and measuring tape.

Our little guy is going to be a Dinosaur for halloween! We love doing family themes! So this year my husband and I are dressing as a Caveman and Cavewoman (Flintstone theme). We are excited for this year for our church sponsored Truck 'trick' or Treat activity.

Step 1: Fold fabric in half, right sides together.
Measuring out the hip measurement (or the largest measurement),
 to make sure that I folded enough fabric 
 Step 2: Get measuring tape and measure the following
Step 3: Place sewing pins at key points of all the measurements you took( as shown in below picture).
Placing pins 10 inches down from the top of the bust and at the
bust measurement (17 inches which is half of 34 inches). 
Placing pins 9 inches down from the waist last pin and at my waist measurement (15 1/2 inches which is half of 31inches) and at my hip measurement (19 inches which is half of 36). 
Step 5: Cut along imaginary line from bust pin to the waist pin. Then to hip pin and then straight down to bottom of fabric. Cutting a smooth curve.
Step 6 : Sew the right sides together, as far down as you want to. I stopped at the thigh so I would have a slit for easy moving.

Step 7: Cut a thin strip from the scrapes. In the middle of the strip sew it to the wrong side and front side of the dress.

Step 8: Try on and make adjustments if too small in areas.

                                        HOW TO MAKE THE CAVEMAN LOIN CLOTH

Step 1: Measure waist (my husband made this himself). 

Step 2: Use the remnant fabric from dress and cut two pieces.
Step 3: Sew right sides together only about 4-6 inches on each side. 
Step 4: Try it on!!

I love this caveman!
