Thanks guys!

I love these pics, especially the serious Super J pose.  Did you use a pattern?

Nope, no pattern!  Just self-drafted Smiley

Thanks very much guys!  There were some people wondering why I didn't make myself a matching suit but metallic lycra is not for the over-puberty set, imho  Wink

This year I made my kids coordinating superhero costumes out of the most masochist fabrics I could find: stretch metallic lycra and silk touch lycra.  They look like unitards but for toddler toileting reasons, they are separate tops and leggings with briefs over the top Smiley



Their initials are appliqued to the chest.



And with matching capes.



The masks I had to back with felt and stitch close to the edge and trim because the lycra was so slippery and fine I couldn't think of anything else to do!

The kids loved them and were generally hilarious all day being heroic Smiley  Thanks for looking!

Thanks  Smiley It was a very long process but I'm super pleased with how it turned out! Kids were pleased too so it was well worth it  Smiley

Although Halloween isn't a huge event in the UK, the kids were invited to a party and I wanted to make them something different.

If I'd been more organised, I would have bought them blanks to embellish but I ran out of time so I had to make their tops and leggings from scratch too!  Basically, I made three different dillusions of bleach/water and spent two days painting and blow-drying skeletons to get an Xray effect.  I have no work in progress pictures because I was basically off my face on bleach fumes  Wink 


Oh, and just to add to my workload, I did the backs too!

Really love your fabric choices!

I made the 18M/2T version, and the only thing I found that didn't make sense on the pattern was the fabric requirements.  It said two yards of the shell fabric and the lining fabric, but I had a metre of both (I'm in NZ and we work in metric), and there was more than enough. 

You're right, I should be clearer about the fabric requirements  Smiley  2yds is really the maximum needed... If you were making 3T / 4T on 44" width fabric and the print is directional, the front pieces, back piece and sleeves all need to be cut one above the other rather than side by side.  I'll clear it up for my next print run, thanks!  Smiley
