I see that you work in a costume shop. I am wondering if you can give me some easy homemade costume ideas for my daughter who is 8 and my son who is 5. I am a beginner at sewing so any advice would be appreciated
There are plenty of ideas for making and sewing easy homemade costumes.
Simplicity patterns, in my opinion, has the best selection of costume sewing patterns.
Other pattern companies are:
McCalls.com Butterick.com Kwiksew.com
Check these websites for patterns and inspiration for making easy costumes. You could do this with your kids online and have them get inspired to let you know what they prefer.
I hope this is helpful Susan,if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.
