Pattern Modifications and Tips

There really are no patterns that are perfect for a costume.  Everything must be modified to some extent.  The trick is to start with a pattern that is close, and then modify the sections you want.  Sometimes this is just a neckline or sleeves, sometimes a lot more.  There will be times when you can combine a couple of patterns to get what you need.
