3. If you have ANY sorts of "arts & crafts" skills, then NO.
With a decent machine and a storebought pattern,
all you need is a few hours of practice and some
VERY CAREFUL attention to the instructions.

And COSTUMES are alot more forgiving in the SKILL department:
Costumes have a much LOWER quality standard than real clothing,
as they only have to look OK from a distance.

Back when I was the manager at the Tuxedo warehouse,
the stuff that was too worn-out to RENT got sold
to musicians and other performers to wear on-stage.
