We’ve split the template pieces in two in order to create the body in two parts, a left and a right side. You can see the outlines that we’ve drawn around the templates, leaving about an inch border all the way around to accommodate the seams. The narrow insert that you can see at the top of these pictures is where the arm goes through when the costume is folded back on itself and the large section at the bottom of the right image is the leg – looks massive doesn’t it!
What we’re doing in these pictures is attaching the liner to the fur, it’ll also keep things in position as we start sewing. You need to dip the pin through both layers, it’s a bit arduous going, don’t forget a thimble!
