What Should I Consider When Choosing A Costume Pattern?
When you choose a costume pattern, there are certain things you need to take into consideration. To ensure you have all your bases covered, we have provided an overview with all the necessary factors to think about.
Weather - One of the most important things to think about when you choose a costume is the weather. If the weather will be bad, you cannot choose a costume with fabric that is too thin. Ideally, you want to have your arms and legs covered against the cold too. If you are expecting heavy rainfall, some moisture-wicking materials will be recommended too.
Drape - When creating a costume, the drape of the fabric you use is extremely important. After all, the wrong drape could ruin a costume in a heartbeat. Fortunately, our costume patterns give you a detailed description of the fabric you will need. So, make sure you read the pattern thoroughly and get the right fabrics for the job.
Budget - Some costumes will be more expensive to make, as they are subject to the fabrics used. To determine which fabrics are used to create a pattern, simply click on one of the patterns in our catalogue and read the description, which mentions the fabric used. Then, you can browse to our range of fabrics to determine the overall cost of your costume.
Complexity - Even those who are quite handy with a sewing machine need to take their skill level into consideration. Some costumes will require experienced tailoring skills, while others are quite straightforward.
Size - Most patterns are delivered in various size combinations, this means you need to check if the pattern will match your size. Even though there is such a thing as conversion of measurements, it can get quite complicated if you are not familiar with sizing.
