The Application Technique can be used in different Ways. As shown before as a Belt, but also for overcasting Seams, Hems or for large-scale Patterns like in this Tutorial

How to work Step by Step:
Sew or compose your Costume, as you need it.
If you know where the Pattern will be sewn on it: take the Fabric or the Pattern for Step 3 as a Template.
Take (leftover) Paper, a Sketch of the Costume as an Overview and Pens for Drawing.
Copy the Fabric or the Pattern on the Paper.
Then draw the desired Pattern as a Template onto the Paper.
Cut and sort everything.
Reinforce your Fabric with Interfacing. It must not go off!
Draw with the Template your Pattern on the Fabric and cut them roughly.
Set your Machine to a Zigzag. This can be nearly look like this.
Sew all the Lines along the Fabric. This can sometimes take a little longer. So be patient.
Tip: watch your favourite Movies or TV Shows. It will calm your Mind by big Patterns like this FAI Version.
The Pattern looks like this, once you've sewed it. Sometimes you have to iron it then.
Cut it out carefully. In this case you may not cut the Seam, otherwise everything loosen.
Cut all the Threads.
Place the Pattern on the Costume / the Fabric. You can clue it or get pin it.
In double-sided Interfacing just put it ironed, then it will not slip.
Sew a second Time with the Zigzag along the Pattern.
Your Appliquè is done! Of course you can iron over it one last Time.
