McCalls has never been on top of the "great costume pattern" game (at least in my mind), but recently they've been doing their best to catch up- both on their main site and their latest branch-off, "Cosplay". Cosplay not only offers exclusive patterns by cosplayers across the globe, but it has a fantastic blog and offers classic out-of-print Butterick and McCall's patterns.
McCall's has a few new patterns that I really dig- but there's plenty more on their site (click the pics to be taken to the page)!
This is McCall's take on Rey's Jakku costume- which would need some adjustments, but otherwise it's a good base. Also, nice Uggs.
Sith lord lovers, rejoice! Here's their dupe for Kylo Ren/Ben Solo's costume. Even if you're not a Kylo fan, this is a great base for any other Sith costume (Darths Maul, Revan, and Nihilus come to mind).
This is definitely not a historically accurate Regency gown, but for cosplayers who are interested in something "different", it's a fun piece. As for you historical sewists, avert your eyes.
The Vault Collection
Like Simplicity's "print-on-demand" feature, "The Vault Collection" is a series of patterns that were once out of print but have been brought back by popular demand. Here are some of my favorite come-backs!
19-teen's sailor-esque blouse? YES PLEASE.
Look closely... those are culottes, not a skirt!
This has always been a classic in my book.
Tune in next week for the last segment of the latest exciting costume patterns saga: Butterick!
