Default How do u make a clown costume?

My three girls are going to be clowns for Halloween. I have to have them made by the 11th or something like that so they can wear them to dance class. I would like to make the old school clown costume that zips or velcros up the back. Could anyone give me tips. I really can't sew but I'm sure I can pull this off. Could I just trace my kids on brown paper and then make cut it out a few inches larger? I can't find any cheap or i'd just buy it. But I have three girl and it gets pricey.lol

My oldest was a clown when she was 3. I just took an old denim jumper dress and glued big multi-colored pom-poms all over it. I bought a pair of rainbow stripe tights and a rainbow turtleneck from Target that went with the colors. I also took an old pair of shoes that she was about to grow out of and glued a big pom-pom on the toe. Painted her nose and cheeks red, did her hair all cute, and there it was!

How about the pillowcase rompers/overalls-then you could put elastic at the ankles and sew big pom poms down the middle and make cute headbands with little clown hats attached? I'm look ing for a pattern for you-but so far haven't found a free one-have you made pants before?

Thank you so much. That might just help.
I've never sewn pants. Only pillow case dresses. But I did make them out of fabric not pillow cases and I sewed it with a white inside. lol

Well I broke down and bought a pattern. They are SO expensive. $14, so much for saving on making my own costumes. Oh well at least this way it will half way turn out. lol But I'm ready to get started. Now I just have to order some cheap cute fabric. Anyone know any etsy or ebay sellers with cheaper fabric around $2.00 a yard with maybe polka dots, stripes something like that.
