If you are only getting a partial then they aren't that important. If you just take measurements, it makes it more difficult for the maker as muscle shape and length can come into play. What I did with my suit was make a pattern suit out of a sheet, then took the suit apart to use as the pattern for cutting the fur. It worked out well. If you can do that, it makes it very easy for the suit maker because he only has to cut out the pieces of fur.
