Hiya,

I'm looking at getting possibly getting PatternMaster Boutique with the thought that I can use it as a basis for creating various costumes. Will it work for making costumes (dresses, skirts, and so on) for men as well as women if the measurements are inputted properly? I've been tinkering with the demo to see what kind of options are available, and I'm quite impressed so far, but I need to know if it will work the way I want before I consider purchasing.

Thanks in advance,

Revolution

Men and Women's patterns draft off different "block".

Several forum users do costumes with both Boutique and Tailor Made.

Oh boy, can it do costumes!! If you want to see some examples, go to my blog and click on the "costumes" tag and you'll see lots. I've done theater costumes, halloween costumes, and cosplay. Between Boutique and Tailor Made, there really isn't anything I can't make!

Feel free to ask questions!

Hi again,

Thanks for the quick answers. I'm definitely a greenhorn when it comes to sewing so I'm asking for a little more clarification.

When you say that the patterns draft off a different block, does this mean I can't make a tailored dress pattern that a guy can wear using Boutique? And likewise with making something for the ladies from Tailor Made? Just wanting to be sure I'm interpreting things properly here.

And Wilmoed - those are some spiffy looking costumes indeed. I'm planning on putting together a full bore Smash Bros Princess Peach costume for next Halloween (I know the work involved will make me cry...) and I figure rather than spend a huge amount getting it custom tailored, I should make it myself and thus learn to be able to do costumes for all sorts of events to come.

Thanks once again!

Do you want to sew this costume for a woman or a man?

Boutique assumes a bust.

Tailor made is designed for a man's body.

Hey again:

In this case for a man, but Tailor Made of course does not have dress or skirt patterns that I can see, whereas Boutique has options that would be pretty much perfect.

Think cross dresser if that helps?

Thanks again, really appreciate the help.

Hey everyone:

Just poking my nose in here to see if there's any further information. I'm definitely leaning towards getting the software after giving it much thought.

Thanks again.

I have made clothes for men using the PMB software rather than TM. I'm sure there are good reasons not to do so, but it does work. On the other hand, TM is not that expensive, and I have certainly had my money's worth out of it, because men's clothing is generally less fitted, so measurements are usually enough for me to make simple garments.

Why not go for it? The program comes with a three month return policy so you have time to try it out. There are lots of small breasted ladies using the boutique software. If your chaps are not concavely chested and/or enhance that dimension it is going to work for you/them. I think you'll not be the first who has used the software for this purpose. Have fun and enjoy!
