This week I'll be starting on Alexander's Dr. Venkman costume for Halloween. I have already digitized the Logo for the sleeve and the Venkman name tag. I had wanted a simple pattern for this one, but when I went to the local fabric store, I soon realized that this wouldn't be the case. Now I know why the surge of vintage patterns is hitting ebay and etsy. So many patterns are out of production and with sewing now becoming popular again, sewers are looking for that classic/traditional pattern. With a little measuring, and taking what's referred to as a slopper pattern, you can create your own pattern, which is what I am doing with this project. Every pattern/garment starts with a basic shape and then it is altered from there. I've already altered the sloppers and gotten the these basic shapes cut out of fabric. From there, I start getting creative, adding other pieces and embellishments.
