How to Sew a Nun Habit Costume Pattern


One of the most commonly asked about costume is a Nun's Habit. Unfortunately I have not seen a pattern for one since sometime before 2005. Necessity being the mother of invention, I went on a search. Although I didn't find a child's nun costume, I did find a "convertible" options.

Your first step is to look at and analyze Nun Costumes

Next look at the various pattern options that are available. Changing the color and shape of the edge of a collar can instantly convert pattern intended for other costumes.
