My daughter wanted to be Catwoman, but not just any Catwoman...Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman. Do you know how hard it is to find an out of print Butterick pattern 6378? Very hard! I actually found one on ebay that was used but had all the pieces I needed.
Since my daughter is so small and petite, I would have to do a lot of adjustments on the sizing. After completing it, I wondered how to get the "stitching" look on the costume. I used fabric paint and referred to pictures on the internet of Michelle Pfeiffer's costume and tried to make the stitching at the same locations. I think I did a pretty good job! Anyway, it worked out perfectly and couldn't be happier with the outcome!
Now my son, in keeping with the whole "Batman, Gotham City" theme, I decided to create The Penguin costume for him. His, there was no pattern for, so I had to get patterns at various places to create each piece of the costume, down to the spats for his shoes! The vest pattern I got HERE, the jacket pattern I got from HERE and it was McCall's pattern 2211, the pants pattern I found free HERE. The bowtie pattern I found HERE, and the spats shoe pattern, I found HERE and since this pattern was for an adult, I had to downsize the pattern and print it out. All in all it came out wonderfully and am very happy with the results!
