what size boning did you use? 1/4 or 1/2? and roughly how long did you need to cut it? 4-5ins?

are you still keeping the inside a secret, or does it get revealed with the instructions that come with this new iteration of the pattern?

It really isn't anything that will keep you from making a good bunny suit. It's something I've experimented with and it hasn't quite worked the way that I've wanted to yet, which is why I haven't shared it. Until I can successfully do it, I'm not going to include it.

I've read this a whole lot, and I realized that your tutorial doesn't cover joining the lining/ interlining to the fashion piece. Is this also a secret?

You do it with the facing. It's kind of irrelevant and I'm going to update the pattern. You can just sew them together and flip them like you would a normal 2 or more piece garment.

I believe it's there at the very end ("Start slip stitching everything closed" meaning all layers). After the lining & interfacing are joined and the zipper is basted on, then you line up everything with your outer layer (fashion layer), being sure to line up all the edges and all the seams. She suggests sewing everything with a slip stitch, but I tend to sew down the ditch (sew in the seams between the pieces) to hide my seams (it's easier for me). Regardless, it's probably best to work from the middle out so you can pull out any ripples as you go.

wow, I wish I had this for when I was making my Scarlet Witch. I just drafted a pattern and made up the steps! I got it right, apparently (i didn't line mine, however) but since I plan to remake mine out of leather, I will have to look at my pattern and this tutorial and see where I can improve! my problem is I used plastic boning, and it is lumpy, and since I'm not skinny enough, I need my cinching power. This was REALLY helpful. THANK YOU AGAIN!

now to the planning stages of my cosplay take-two!

Did you use fusible interfacing for the satin or did you use sew on? I was afraid the fusible might ruin the satin.

Fusible. You just have to be slow and careful about it.

They are actually kind of irrelevant, I'm going to be updating the tutorial. You can just sew the top of the bodice together and flip it like you would with any 2 or more piece garment.

When doing a mock-up, do you leave it as just the lining layer and pin accordingly, or do you use all three layers plus boning for the mock-up? Just curious because I'm about to start mine today.

This tutorial helps so much, I've always admired your bunny suits. Are you still planning on giving out the inner secrets of the suit? I may just hold off on making mine until then.

Probably not. It's the only secret I keep (mostly) to myself. Though I tend to tell people who ask me in person.

I do use twill tape when I'm making corsets =); It is easier to sew along and are stronger to my eye (after trying lot of things to make the channels! X,x)
Nice tutorial! Hugs from Chile.

Would there be any way to get a list of just the materials you used? Like the sizes of the boning and how much bias tape you used.

:iconrufflebuttcosplay:
RuffleButtCosplay Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
The boning is 6 inch pieces, except in the bean center, which is 8, and the side seam, which is also 8. I just buy a pack of bias tape and it gets me through.
