Picture of how to make a vampire costume for children
i have never sewn anything (well except for button) or make any clothes before, this is my first time and it turns out quite well. so for anyone who want to try but never sewn anything before, don't worry. you just have to take the first leap and everything will flow along. have fun.

-black cloth

Step 2: Imagination

the first thing you have to do is to measure the child's measurement.
-the circumference of the waist, neck(give an additional space so that the kid won't be chocked to death), and shoulder

then you have to think about how the costume will looked like. I've drawn mine(look at the picture).

Step 3: Paper pattern (vest)

we will make the vest first then the cape.
the next step is to make a model of the vest from news papers. you have to be extra careful because it can be ripped easily.
use pare glue to stick to news paper together.

don't forget to test it on the child and make sure it is not to loose or tight.

after you make sure the size,break the paper vest into 3 pieces and put the cutted newspaper on top of the black cloth, trace the line and cut it.

Step 4:

after cutting all three pieces fold all the side around 5 millimeter / 0.5 centimeter so the pieces of cloth will be more neat.

turn the pieces of cloth and assemble all 3 pieces and sew it with a sewing machine.

don't for get to put buttons and make button holes.

Cute little vampire.
That is so cute! I think I love the little ruffly tie the best! Did you really use the old push peddle sewing machine?
well, the table is design for peddling, but my grandma had put a motor on it, so i just had to step on the peddle attached to the motor and the machine will move.
