I have a medium chest, and a small waist, but i am 6ft. tall. I don't usually use patterns that are pre-made. what do you suppose i should do in measuring?

What a great picture. Your brother is going to treasure this forever. I have this pattern too, and now I'm going to use all your time-saving tricks!

I made this for my older stepson two years ago from an inexpensive faux suede I found at Joann's. He looked fabulous, and met his current girlfriend that night -- I think the Neo look was a hit.

Lee Ann, I'm actually in LA quite often. DBFs parents live in Century City/Westwood. I've been meaning to get to the fashion district, but don't seem to have any money left over after F&S!!

I made this last year for my DGS, age 6 I found a really cool kind of stretchy fabric that looks like leather at the $1.00 a yard man at the LA fabric district. I don't know what part of CA you live in but with the amount of costumes you have made you owe yourself a trip to the fabric district if you already haven't been! About two months ago I found several more bolts of the stuff, in black, electric blue, yellow, and red. It was easy to sew and looked very much like leather when done. Read your profile, don't worry, I believe you!! Princess dresses draped on My Little Ponies--I understand!!

What a superb costume! Such a lucky brother to have a sis like you.

I didn't think of the old Stitch Witchery trick for the hem on my costume. Must be my old Home Ec teachers haunting me. :) You are a costume making wizard (just couldn't resist again). You have very fortunate brothers and make sure you tell them that. Your costumes are all wonderful. All the appropriate dramatic details that make a difference were included.

Another excellent costume! He looks great. I have this pattern in the adult size but alas, noone to make it for...yet...

Great Job! I'm sure that the broadcloth was much easier to sew than synthetic leather too! Never thought about the Pinhead costume, but you're right.... Now my husband's going to want one too.
