FO Big Bad Wolf!

I’m really happy with the jacket and a little sad that it will probably be too warm to wear it once the show’s over. It has a nice, roomy neckline that’s kind of sexy but still demure.
Here’s the whole thing:

Next one I make, I think I’ll use smooth yarn for the body, add some waist shaping (or maybe start ribbing right under the bust?), cuffs to match the collar.

Here’s the rest of the costume, some furry lace-up hotpants with a wolf tail, a skirt that fastens above the tail in the back, fur-trimmed bikini top, matching pasties, wolf ears, and a jaunty little scarf. I’ll try to get pictures of it on the dancer at the rehearsal.
