The idea has been developed by fashion designer Karen Korjus in the university of Scotland in 2014. The idea came from the early years of her childhood when she always used to cut holes into her mother’s dresses and curtains to get new materials for her dolls' clothes. But she lacked the skills of a seamstress and so the fabric was waisted. She then had an idea to create clothes by building them up from small pieces like playing with LEGO. The building up process for the kids should be fun and easy and would not need any sewing, gluing, cutting or wasting new material. And so the Costume Puzzle was born.
