I selected a larger pattern size for this bodysuit; with the main idea of this being a non-stretch bodysuit.  There will be little give with the finished fabric/foam suit.  To make it easy to pull out my seams later I based my pattern pieces together using a long stitch setting on my machine and red thread.  The Red thread made for easy seam-ripping later (due to the large stitch length, I was able to carefully pull my seams apart by hand!)

This is what it looked like without arms/legs and before test fitting and any adjustments were made. I made sure to iron my pattern pieces prior to sewing them together, this helped take out any wrinkles that had set into the muslin.
