Introducing the Vault!

The Vault Collection from Cosplay by McCall'sEver find exactly the pattern you need for your cosplay project, only to discover that it’s out of print and hard to find?  We’ve had requests to bring back some of the gems from our past catalogs, so we’re going to be re-introducing some old favorites and costume essentials exclusively for Cosplay by McCall’s.

This first group of Vault Collection patterns is selected from our out-of-print McCall’s and Butterick pattern archives, and focuses on basics and foundations. They’re printed on slightly thicker tissue than our regular patterns, so they’ll be a little more durable if you want to keep and re-use them, and they come in re-designed glossy envelopes. We hope you’ll find them a useful addition to your costume repertoire!

M2001 underpinnings from the Vault Collection at Cosplay by McCall’s

If you like your dresses big, this versatile selection of underpinnings is a must-have. Make your own custom hoop skirt and corset to give your gown the perfect silhouette, plus a camisole and bloomers for good measure.

The right foundations are essential for historical and historically-inspired costumes. Build up your 18th-Century look with this package of stays, pocket hoops, pockets, and a petticoat.

M2005 chemises - the Vault Collection by Cosplay by McCall’s

A selection of chemises with length, sleeve, and trim variations are easy to make and the perfect base layer for a whole range of costumes. Perfect in cotton or lightweight linen, wear them under corsets and gowns or distress them up for a pirate outfit.

These Renaissance doublets have frog closures, trim variations, and a selection of fabulous sleeves. This is a great opportunity to have some fun with luxurious fabrics and trims!

Finally, this split-front gown is pure regal drama. We’re in love with those sleeves—they’d be great in velvet with metallic braid, or maybe a silky brocade.

These pieces won’t be appearing in stores, but they’re available now at the Cosplay by McCall’s site. We can’t wait to see what you make!

  • Please please PLEASE! re-release M7990 and M7991 from 1982 – the ABT Tutu patterns. When I needed them, I was having to buy them used on eBay and they were way too expensive (I even saw some going for $500 each)! They were great patterns and wonderful for a beginner ballet mum-seamstress-costume maker. I’m sure the ballet mum world out there would thank you endlessly if these were re-released!

  • OH please continue with the vault. cos play is becoming so popular and modifying patterns has become harder and harder. I myself want to begin a special costume from WOW called:
    wow priest Absolution Regalia Tier 6 in blue and purple.
    These costumes are so complex and im just a learner in patterns. These types of patterns save us so many issues in mock ups and wasting of fine materials.
    Like i love this costume so much i want to be buried in it… Cos play is so much fun. please do lots and lots more

  • Please please I am trying to get hold of mccalls pattern m4890. Second hand is very expensive! Is there a digital copy available?

  • Another request from ballet mom, M7990 and M7991 please!

  • I would love to recover three of my favorite McCall’s patterns from the 70’s. They are 5110, 4794 and 4325. The two that were nightware I also made at summer dresses. The apron one I made to ice skate in and I really miss them.
    Thank you.

  • How much do each of these patterns cost? I love them!
