That's fantastic! I don't think I have seen a better looking WW costume probably ever. I need to work on my knitting so I can do this kind of thing. Great work Cheesy

You are a glorious amazon! Now you should use your awesome knitting skills to tackle an invisible plane (fishing line perhaps?)

would you mind sharing your charts?

Thanks for the interest!

The stars and eagle on the bodysuit were knit separately, then sewed on as appliques, so no charts there. I did make notes on the stars, since I had to make multiples, but figured out the eagle as I went. I'd have to go back and look at the the thing to write out instructions. The stars on the headband and wristbands were from the Stitch 'n Bitch Powerful Wrist Protection pattern, but not the construction from the book, as mine are finer yarn and wider.

I've also got notes for what I did for my costume for my big 50"x40"x50" curves. I was thinking about making up a spreadsheet where you could plug in your measurements and get a version of the pattern for your exact size. As everyone's proportions aren't the same, and you really need an exact fit for the thing to look good. Or, do you think that I should just put out my notes for people to figure out how to size it for themselves?

Would people be willing to buy a spreadsheet if I took time to make one up?

Wow! I totally didn't think of doing that, I was going to duplicate stitch it all but applique makes a lot more sense. Thanks so much for the tips! A spreadsheet sounds awesome and you could totally use the body suit in other colors for other superheros too...or supervillians! Cheesy

I totally thought about duplicate stitching it too, but I did a heap of short row shaping for the cups, and thought that it would not duplicate stitch nicely. Once I decided to do the eagle as a separate piece, then it snowballed to all being appliques!

My pal booglass thought so too, she's thinking about making a BatGirl version in black and yellow for Halloween!  Cheesy
