I took on the challenge to make the formal garb of the Beast from Beauty and the Beast for a friend's 6 year old son. The construction and making wasn't difficult. The detailing was a bit; i.e., the piping tested my patience. I used McCall's M6143 as my guide, actually very fortunate as I found it in the "out of print" section for $1.14 - Boys size 6-7. It ran small though. I used suit "C." Very pleased and hope to make little boy smile!
