4041Re: [F-Costume] Help with Tonks costume
- Dec 1, 2008Was just reviewing the costume again and noticed the name of the
pictures. This is from Harry Potter! (Said I didn't know the
costume.) While not throwing you off the list... and we're glad to
help.... have you checked out the Harry Potter costuming list and
web???? http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MadameMalkins/ and
http://www.costumebeginner.com/malkins/ (this link isn't working right
now, but expect it to come back up)
** Reminder to everyone.... go to Movie Costumes on our web and click on
Resources to find out where to look up movie costume research sites...
and never be afraid to send us more.

work with since it's likely a
very stable knit
I change what I said before and agree with Sara.
Only thing you need to know about this fabric is that the mix of plastic
dots/shapes and fuzzied knit, it's a bit hard on sewing needles. You
should always put in a new needle for a new project... but this one
could eat more than a few. When you're just sewing the coat, a medium
universal (or ball) needle is fine. When you switch over to sewing on
the trim, switch to a heavy universal needle... and if you're machine
starts acting up, change needles again.
Really depends on what the back look like. I think there's a waist seam
in front... so a pirate or frock coat might work better. There are
multiple options in simplicity... Adrea does a simple coat here that you
could just lengthen:
There are other options.
