Halloween Costume Patterns

As some of you may already know, as well as my Deb Upcycles Etsy shop, I also have two shops where I sell what I call Second Chance Craft Supplies. These are fabric, lace, kits, patterns and more that I find in various thrift shops, yard sales and such.

With Halloween coming up I thought  would feature some costume patterns that I've found.

This first one would be great for cosplay. It includes the top, corset and ruffled skirt. A pattern for the wings is not included.

The great thing about Halloween costumes is that you don't need to use new fabric for them. Use your imagination, old sheets (remember the ghosts) curtains, leftover fabric from other projects or just something found at a thrift shop can be used.  This pattern could give you all kinds of ideas!


And clowns?? Who can resist a clown? It's the perfect costume, lots of fun and not too scary.

Let's get creative and tell me what ideas you have for Halloween costumes, they don't need to start with a pattern but you can't use new items. Maybe we'll have a contest later for upcycled Halloween ideas. I'll have to think about that.

All of these patterns and more can be found at Deb's Patterns.
