GARUDA [WARFRAME] TETRIS BODYSUIT WAR

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 […]
