Ever 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!
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.
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!
