    Definitely do! And thank you so much for mentioning Jabbadashery--I had never heard of them! What do you think of the Zam fabric (color, sheen, etc)?

    I didn't think they were making it anymore. Guess I'll take another look at their website. I had the impression they were out of it, and not getting more.

    OK! It would appear they are trying to get this out for people making stuff for the parties and such... Awesome news, Sirene! Makes this alot easier since I won't have to dye my own now!!!

    I'm having trouble finding a pattern. How much fabric should I purchase? And who knows where I can find a great pattern for it?

    I have not ordered it yet. I'm looking at 3 yards (a little over 2 1/5 meters). I think it's only going to take 1 1/2 to 2 yards to make the actual costume, with the stretchy material in between the neoprene. I don't know for sure yet, but that's my best guess. The other 1/12 is for screw ups or another costume should the first one work well.

    I'm using a body suit pattern and adapting it. Going to cut the pattern out of stretchy scrap material I bought first before cutting the precious neoprene.

    Nomisha, can you tell me where you got the body suit pattern? And how many meters of fabric did you guys buy?

    I'm using Kwik Sew K3052 and going to adapt (as you do). I can't remember - it was so long ago that I bought it! Put this costume on the back burner at the moment.

    I actually found that pattern at a sewing class I took last week, and I bought it as I knew it was one of the few people had utilized for this costume. I haven't bought from Jabbadashery yet, but I've got the black matte lycra already. Hopefully, I can buy the neoprene in two weeks.
