At this stage you’ve got metres and metres of fabric of different sorts lying around plus some now useless decorators overalls. You’re wondering how you’re ever going to make a costume for a character from Where The Wild Things Are. It’s time to get cracking.
In the photo you can see the armless overalls lying splayed on top of the cotton and then the fur below it. We decided to use cotton because the fur backing is rather rough and I’m such a delicate flower that I wanted it to be more comfy to wear. At this stage we are trying to decide whether to do both legs and the back in one piece or if it would make more sense to do two halves.
The next step, either way, is to draw an outline of the overalls template onto the cotton liner.
