Help?

I'm a cosplayer, working on a costume for a convention coming up and after all the searching I did, the one piece I need doesn't appear to exist so I decided to make it. Only problem is, I'm not sure where to start.

I need a green and purple stripped pullover hoodie. I figure sewing would be the best option, but can't seem to find a pattern online. Anyone know of any patterns that would be available in stores, or even a better way to go about this?

Could you post a picture of the one you're trying to make?

You could always paint it with fabric paints, which would probably be the cheapest option. Other than that, you could cut green and purple hoodies into strips and sew them together in whatever formation you need them.

Or you can just cut a green OR purple hoodie and sew it onto the other one. =)

A picture would be great.

If you need a pattern for a generic bunny hug, simplicity 7854 (you can buy the pattern online if you can't find it in a pattern store). If you don't want to spend the money or time, take an old bunnyhug that you no longer use, but that still fits, and cut it out along the seams (when you trace this, add a seam allowance).

If you need to have the stripes a certain way (which is usually the case), figure out the base colour and build the bunny hug out of that. Before sewing, cut the stripes out and applique them onto the cut out fabric pieces (or you could build your own striped fabric by cutting out the stripes from each fabric and sewing them together before construction).

I hope this helps Happy
