Custom Pattern Commission Needly Urgently
Hello,I am looking for someone who can please make me a custom pattern for a cosplay. I am aiming to have my cosplay completed for the London MCM Expo on October 26th-28th.

http://fav.me/d2bltz6 and http://fav.me/d2blu2s are the two that I am interested in. I will only require you to make a pattern for one. How long would it take you to make each? Also, how much would it cost for each?

Thank you in advance for any help given.

You could just customise this; http://www.simplicity.com/p-5094-misses-sportswear.aspx

Mixing the blouse with the dress will make the master one, though if you went for Valour I'd go with getting a hood pattern too.

Another option is buying a tube dress from primark (since it's summer they should have plenty of options ) and either use that as a base and sew/paint details on (this is the better option since you have such little time for expo, the less you have to sew/make from scratch the better )

Or the second option is with the tube dress you've bought cut it up following the seams and use this to make your pattern.

An third option (and the option I would use) Is buy the fabric you want to use and get a friend or family member (or you can do this yourself with a bit of practice) and wrap it round you and pin to get the correct shape. This way you don't need a pattern at all

With the two pattern creation techniques make sure you include a seam allowance - I usually only do 1cm as I sew very closely to the edges which is a bad habit but you can leave up to 5cm seam allowance depending on your sewing style

The hood can be removed off an existing hoodie from primark or a charity shop

Here an idea for dress pattern from a dress:
