|Pattern Description: |
Costume seen in the new Captain America movie. This was featured in the New York City dance scene, it is a costume from one of the back up singers/dancers.
There is a group of girls making these costumes for Dragon Con 2011 in September. We will all match in fabrics and colors so we look as much like we stepped out of the movie as possible.
The costume was a collaborative effort of several people in research and pattern development. Some girls were using a pre-made pattern for the bodice of the dress, I drafted my own. There was a shared pattern for the skirt panels, sequin lapel, and hat.
