Re: Creating a breakaway costume
- If possible remove the magnets before cleaning. Magnets are iron and
will rust if exposed to water or other oxidizing agents.
I made a casing and than sewed across the casing at appropriate
intervals to create small pockets for the magnets. The strength of the
magnets needed will depend on where they are being used and the amount
of movement needed before the breakaway. The costumes that I made were
for dance and the magnets did a fabulous job. With magnets there is not
an issue with noise.
