After doing a lot of reading tonight, I really didn't find any reference to commercial patterns that people may have started with and then modified to make the clothing items on Zam's suit. In particular, the pants, top and vest come to mind.
I did read that back on the original fabric run you all were paying someone's seamstress to draft patterns for you. Is a general pattern still available from this seamstress? Or ZamIAm, do you know what patterns she may have started with to aid in drafting her own? I'm OK with adding in and moving around seams. I just need a good shape to start with as a pattern block. I've found a pattern for Women's riding Breeches I'm considering.
STRETCH OF OUR NEOPRENE: What kind of stretch does the neoprene have? Not much? Does it end up being a slight 4 way stretch?
THICKNESS OF NEOPRENE: I'd like to know what the original thickness of the neoprene was before the lycra and nylon were laminated to it.
NEOPRENE FOR MOCK UPS: Because I only have on chance to get this right, I think I'd like to do a mock-up in neoprene if I can afford it. Hence, the above questions on thickness.
