Patterns

Postby Silent Huntress » Wed Jun 08, 2005 12:20 pm

Does anyone know where or even if I can find patterns for goth clothing? I love to sew and want to make my own clothes, but, not having a lot of time to design or alter patterns, I'd like to find some patterns that are already leaning in that direction. Like strap skirts, corsets, etc.

If anyone knows of anything, let me know.

Thanks :P

Not to be rude, but have you tried googling "goth patterns"?

It returned 10 plus pages for me.....

Try your local fabric store such as Hancock's, JoAnn's, etc. Simplicity, Butterick and McCalls all have patterns that lean in that direction. Just look in the "Costumes" section of the pattern books. Most of the patterns are more period-type clothing with corset and skirt patterns, but they can be a start and be modified into something different.

If you want to see if the patterns are what you are looking for before you make the trip to the fabric store, you can browse the patterns at

Hope this helps.

Definitely not rude. Some days my brain just doesn't function.

I appreciate the suggestion! :D

See if you can locate a store (or maybe on line) for BURDA patterns. They are a German company. They DO have some cute patterens that could be adapted easily for a more gothic appeal. The sizing is slightly different than American, and don't get confused by the multilingual or metric stuff. Just cut off any pages of info. not in the language of your choice and you should do fine. ;)

For those of you who like the long gowns, or flouncy pirate costume or want to try a hand at corsetry and are looking for a pattern you may want to check out the following suppliers for historic reenactors
