This month when I was doing some pinning on my Halloween Pinterest board, I stumbled upon an awesome Japanese website full of free costume sewing patterns. The website is called DR-Cos, and it’s a Cosplay website where you can find costume sewing patterns to dress up as a ninja, nurse, maid, cheerleader, vampire, the list goes on and on! All theses sewing patterns are free to download. The only thing is, they are all in Japanese!
I reached out to the lovely lady behind DR-Cos, and she is more than happy for me to translate the sewing patterns into English and share them with you all 🙂
So first up, I’ve translated this free Ninja sewing pattern. It’s a great pattern because it includes all the “official” components of Ninja attire, such as the hood, hand guards and shin guards. The outfit also comes with authentic Hakama pants, which is are pleated formal pants with a waist tie, worn traditionally by men only.
DR-Cos has an English website as well, but the patterns are still all in Japanese. If you guys have a design you’d really like to be translated, please let me know by leaving a comment below.
The free Ninja sewing pattern has been translated into English over on my other blog, Japanese Sewing Patterns.
