Here is the costume that I've made to go with my card model. Making it does use cardmodeling since I make a preliminary model out of paper. I draw the shapes with a sharpie on wrapping paper and then tape the parts together and try the version on to see if I have the basic shape right. I adjust by cutting or by taping on additional pieces of paper. Then I cut the tape and use the paper pieces as a pattern. I add 1/2 inch seam allowance as I cut. Commercial patterns usually have the seam allowance already added but the tape and cut method works best with finished size pieces. You can see that the thought process is very similar to card modeling. Both take a flat shape and make it three dimensional. The difference is that fabric is soft, stetches, and can be sewn without puncturing. I put this on here because I appear to be the only woman here and sewing is such a traditionally female interest. I thought it good to show the similarity between the two mediums and the possible common intests between sewers and cardmodelers. Here is both the finished costume and the paper pattern used to make it.
