NOTES: My first attempt at a bunny suit! It was my big crash course into corsetry, and there was a lot of trial and error to get to look somewhat decently. I started by draping the pattern and made quite a few muslin mock-ups before I was satisfied with the shape. I wanted it to be as structured as possible, so I added 38 pieces of spiral and steel boning. Forget being able to breathe, I wanted that hourglass shape! :P It took me three months to get the construction down, but it was well worth it.
I made my sister's Aisaka Taiga suit using the same pattern. I took it in around a 1/2" at each seam since she's much much tinier than I am. Her blue suit zips up in the back, where as mine laces up with grommets. I wish I had good pictures of the back of my suit... I'll have to add it to my list of things to do. Although getting in and out of the lace up suit was a huge pain, it works wonders in giving you a super cinched-in waist.
P.S. This lovely black bunny suit & other colors are available at my online shop! They're custom made with lots of love & attention to detail ✧˖° ♡
