If you look closely at Michelle's suit the 'open seams' aren't actually open at all, there's a second layer of rubber inside to hold it all together and take the stress. So, a meter of translucent 0.4mm rubber, some Bostik 3851 and No 4 thinners.
Also, 15m of 1mm white rubber beading thread and some Scotch-Weld PR20 rubber and plastic adhesive. I tested several glues for the stitching and although it's not cheap this stuff is by far the best. It's runny like a liquid superglue and it sticks the natural rubber beading cord to sheet latex like the proverbial :)
