Hi there! Cheesy
So.  I'm looking for a pattern for a jacket.  I'm interested in making one similar to that of Beetlejuice!

So, I was wondering.  Are there any patters that are similar to the way that it looks?
I mean, it doesn't have to be a jacket pattern.  I could add sleeves onto a vest one if need be. Smiley

Also.  What kind of fabric would I use for this?  I'd like to make pants at some point, too.
(My mom doesn't want me buying the Beetlejuice costume. Sad )

Thank you so much! <333

I posted a link up of the pattern picture that I used to make my husbands BeetleJuice costume 2 years ago (he won best costume) It is Simplicity #9686 and I used the brown suit (c) and just changed the material to black and white stripes. When making the costume remember that the stripes on the sleeves go in the opossite direction to the rest of the suit.......Hope that this helps...and Good luck with your project.  Smiley Smiley
