USO Girl


first of all I’d like to apologize if my English seems weird. I’m not fluently speaking English yet, but I will try to give my best :)

Last year I saw the movie “Captain America” and immediately fell in love with the USO Girls in the beginning and especially their outfits.

Sometimes I try to cosplay again (sort of stopped a while ago) and thought this would be a nice and easy costume to get back into the vibe.

The patterns are all selfmade, so I can’t really share any recommendations but I’m sure there are some tutorials out there, as this is quite a popular costume among Marvel cosplayer :)


The fabric is a cotton satin and the petticoat is made of chiffon.

Sewing the sequin fabric was quite annoying but I’m glad I somehow managed to get the collar right :D

I hope you like the costume :)

Hello there, I'm Reika, 22, from Germany and I'm a trained seamstress, cosplayer, retro and vintage lover and fabric hoarder ;D Unfortunately I blog in German so I thought it'd be a good idea to share my sewing projects on here, as I always try out old/vintage/reproduction patterns and would like to share my opinion on them :)
