Sewing Patterns
I've tried using the search to find some help, but couldn't so i've resorted to asking you guys.

I'm about to start making my first quadsuit and to make things easier I'm looking for a pattern for the body suit part. I don't suppose anyone knows anywhere online that sells them or does them for free as I can't seem to find one

Also, if anyone has experience with making quadsuits, help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

When you say bodysuit do you mean a lycra catsuit like clingy, or do you mean a baggy fur suit? I saw a sewing pattern on eBay for fancy dress animal suits...

this one any good?

The other option could be that you make a duct tape pattern to work with, there are a lot of stuff out there to help with that especially youtube, just search duct tape body suit or something like that

I'll have to agree with SparklingMinx for this one. However I would recomend resting it out on a cheeper fabric to see if it works before doing it with fur

I second everyone. The shape of your fur suit will depend on the shape of your foampadding and therefore it would be difficult to buy a perfect pattern.

1. make a quad specific duct tape dummy

2. Pad it to give the illusion of animal musculature as required.

3. Make your pattern. If it were me I'd do this by taking scrap fabric and pinning it around the duct tape dummy. Then I'd transfer the pattern to the fur. In fact I did do this to an extent.

4. Some people attach the foam padding to a tight fitting body suit. Some people glue the padding directly to the fur. You'll have to decide what works best for you.
