Making a catsuit

This video is part 2 of a multi-video tutorial on how to create your very own tailored catsuit with different types of stretch fabrics.  The presenter of the video is a man with an English accent, but he is very easy to understand.

The reason in choosing this video is because in the very beginning of this more than seven minute tutorial the presenter shows the viewer the two different types of stretch fabrics available to individuals attempting to make their own catsuits or other clothing products.

Further, if you are interested in using vinyl fabric, you should be aware that there is stretch vinyl that stretches two ways, and four-way stretch.  For those individuals looking for something more restrictive, the two-way stretch vinyl fabric is the way to go, and for those needing more movement in their outfits say for performance purposes or comfort the four-way stretch vinyl fabric is the best choice.

The presenter then begins to show you how to take your measurements to draw out a pattern for the tailored catsuit.  You can use these simple instructions to create shirts, skirts, pants, and whatever you like because the concepts are essentially the same.  Another great point is that from watching how this pattern is created and then applied the viewer is able to see how easy it is to create your own patterns.

This video’s simple to follow instructions are a great value to the novice or intermediate sewer looking to take a little chance on some fairly new products.  You could even take the lower part of the catsuit and turn the pattern into a pair of stretch vinyl leggings which are trending at this moment.  Check out this video for a easy to follow catsuit guide, and step out of your comfort zone to learn something new.
