Simplicity Patterns 

Simplicity Patterns for Costumes

In my opinion, Simplicity Patterns offers the best selection of costume patterns for adults and children. They carry a wide range of patterns that are current and on trend with cosplay, Disney, as well as historical costume patterns. I sew costumes all year round for my Etsy business. Getting inspiration as well as saving time is very important to me. If I am in a time crunch for making a costume, drafting my own patterns isn't always convenient. I like to use commercial sewing patterns to help me speed things up and Simplicity is a big help to me in this way.
