Costumes Are Cool! Some Mid-Century Costume Ideas for You To Sew

By Andrea

Ruth reposted some fantastic costume ideas from the 50s yesterday, but just in case you didn’t find the right costume there, I’ve got some sweet costume patterns from Etsy for you!

From seller HeyChica:


Who doesn’t want to be a superhero?  The tough part would be deciding between Batman, Superman or Robin!

From seller TheSpectrum:


Feeling undecided or have a few people to costume?  This lot is priced great for the number of patterns, and there’s some real gems in here.  The boys’ “space” costume is fantastic!

From seller zadoodle:

I will admit that I usually find clowns a little creepy, but this costume is pretty cute.  And the jester idea is adorable!

From seller GreyDogVintage:

For any men out there looking for ideas, the ringmaster view is pretty fantastic!  Or maybe a couple’s costume idea, Uncle Sam paired with …

From seller mbchills:

Lady Liberty!  The Grecian goddess would be a lovely, elegant costume idea as well.

And, although this isn’t a pattern, I just had to share this as it is super cute!  From seller luvvinjewels:

This adorable scarecrow fabric would be great not just for Halloween, but for Thanksgiving as well.  And, with it being a 4 yard length, there’s lots there to work with!

I hope this gives some ideas for those of you who are still undecided, and those of you who aren’t, I’d love to hear what your Halloween costume plans are!

    No plans here for costumes, but that Lady Liberty costume sure is pretty!

      Me too! I am very tempted to add that pattern to my collection.
