Hi! :D Aw, thank you so much for the compliment! I’m so happy you like my Sheik Cosplay!
Of course I’ll try to help you out as best I can!
Though, unfortunately, I’m not quite sure what you mean by “layers”…
However, I’ll try to demonstrate the method we used to create all the patterns that were used for this costume!
First, I asked my ma to help me wrap myself in newspaper and crepe tape….
After that, I drew the shape I needed for the pattern on it….
…and cut the newspaper open.
Finally, all that’s left to do is cut out all the pieces and… you’ll have a perfectly fitting pattern! :D
(Please take note that this is not the particular pattern used for Sheik. It’s just for demonstration purpose…^^°)
You can repeat this on your limbs or wherever else you need armor pieces or skin-tight clothing. Just remember to leave enough seam allowance :)
I hope this helped you out at least a bit…. if anything’s still unclear please feel free to ask me anytime~
