Hello there. I thought I would just straight up ask, because I'm still learning alot of things about sewing.
I'm making a Vaporeon Gijinka, and this is basically what I want to do:
I want it to be a one piece "swimming" suit, with the white collar (though, more raised like actual Vaporeon), with an attached tail. Oh, and then spikes along the spine.
I'm planning on getting a swimming suit pattern from Jo-ann's (Simplicity since they're on sale). My question is, what's the process to go about modifying the pattern to include the spikes? Or the best way to go about them?
I want them to be stiff and..well, spikey. I'm kinda leaning away from stuffing it with polyfill, because it seems to give it a more roundish look, like my example pic.
