Dog pants? Ridiculous.

The second part of Shelby's costume involves pants. I'll admit this is not the best fitting pattern. The T-shirt and mask fit her a lot better, so if you try this, I'd recommend knit fabric. So long as the pants are not too baggy, Shelby can't step out of them, and I'm a little suprised that Shelby doesn't seem to mind wearing them.

Here's a really bad drawing of what they are supposed to look like.

Shelby has "old man" face in her picture. HA HA! (my pug gets it, too, when his top lip gets stuck and rolls in a bit).
