Long gone are the days where Halloween costumes were sewn from a Simplicity pattern.  Now you can buy all the latest characters for $25 at the pharmacy…so sad..so sad!  What intrigues me most about these patterns is how our ideas of clown have changed over the years.  Really baggy costumes used to be the rage.  Now fashion dictates the silhouettes and thus even costumes are fitted and shaped.  These Bozo clowns look really dated to the modern eye.

I really love the red and white puffy clown pants.  I want to make these for Smirkus one day.

Again the red and white vertical stripes are really kind of cute.

I love that the same pattern can make you a peasant, an angel or a witch.  I, of course, would opt for WITCH!
