About the event

Educator: CowbuttCrunchies (Scone) Can't find the perfect pattern? Learn how to alter and adapt commercial patterns to match any costume or cosplay design! In this hands-on workshop, we'll walk through common methods for changing the style of garments, no matter how outlandish your design might be. In this class we will discuss how to take commercial patterns and alter them to better fit a unique costume or cosplay design. Learn how to choose the correct base pattern, how to determine what changes are needed, and the difference between "fit" alterations and "style" alternations. We will walk through a hands on demo of how to change the style of a sleeve, and how that technique can apply to many other garment pieces. Basic sleeve patterns will be provided but class members are welcome to bring one of their favorite patterns from home. Printed reference materials and your customized muslin mock up, will be available to take home and apply these concepts to your next project.
