I have a little Peppa obsessed girl over here and that’s okay with me because I kinda love listening to Peppa and her friends in the background! This Peppa Pig costume DIY is perfect for Halloween and dress-ups after!
This Toddler Peppa Costume just a basic red dress with a few little pig accessories- ears and a nose! I love how simple this costume is! You can DIY the whole Peppa Pig costume including the dress, or just buy a red dress and make your own accessories!
I used the Pippa Dress pattern for this and I’m totally laughing at how close Pippa is to Peppa! Hah! This pattern is one of my go-tos for pretty much every play dress! It’s so easy and the Add-on pattern makes it super versatile! I’ve used the Pippa dress pattern for so many dresses. Here are a few:

- Banded Pippa Peplum Variation
- Fringe Neckline Dress // Pippa Peplum Hack
- Ballet Back Knit Dress Tutorial

The best part about this pattern is it comes in sizes NB all the way up to 10 for girls, so you can make a Peppa Pig baby costume or one for older girls!! And there is a matching women’s pattern called the Penelope! It’s a great base pattern for a lot of Halloween costumes!
