Black Cat Costume

Made for a friend, who has a custom Black Cat doll waiting for her outfit..

Sewing vinyl or pleather is tricky in many ways.  I learned a lot designing and sewing this costume.
I glued the curves down and then did the edge stitching since the seam allowance is so small. 

The photos that follow are the ones I took before it was all finished.



It has been great to get back to sewing and creating.  We still have work to do at Mom's...but I am taking a break :)



My week of fun so far :0)
Cheers, PB





  1. Sewing pleather is such a pain in the butt; my thumbs ache at the thought! That's why I'm a spandex-girl all the way. And I love that maroon one-piece, it's GORGEOUS. Good luck finishing the clean up at your mum's house.

  2. Love the outfits! Especially the first one! Always great to hear from ya!

  3. My friend mentioned to me your blog, so I thought I’d read it for myself. Very interesting insights, will be back for more! clothes
