Yes, I did pull out my crayons to help color in sections.
I taped up the a master template of the outfit, along with all of the color coding, so I could look up and make sure I was using the correct piece. Having this template up (along with the drawings) helped quite a bit.
There were quite a few pieces that needed to be stitched in order. (And in some cases, I forgot to refer to my initial notes and sewed pieces out of order :-( )
There was the occasional need to rip out a seam that I just made to line up all of the pieces, but for the most part, all of the preparatory work I had done made putting together the outfit quite easy.
I was pleased that everything "seemed" to still come out looking pretty darn good!
Having the extra space from having the utility cart helped. I could lay out all of the pieces in order before sewing them all together.
Overall, the finished body of the suit looks pretty good. It was a right pain-in-the-arse to have to line up all of the asymmetrical pieces, but it worked out. And because I used a "pattern" that fit me, the suit fits perfectly.
I still have to make the gloves and boots for Shego, and maybe a few final finishing touches, and I should be done!
