Can anyone give me some advice on illustrator task?

Hi Guys,

I have never really used illustrator and have pretty much stayed with indesign/photoshop for anything graphical. I am having a bit of a problem that maybe you could help me with.

I have uploaded an illustrator file in the link below. Basically I have to simplify the file/layers and make one main clipping mask between the body sections and sleeves.

The guy wants to be able to use this as a template to further design onto (logos, patterns etc). What is the best/easiest way to go about this? I need to also make sure that things like the seams/stitching do not get effected.

I really appreciate your comments



I tried to check it out, but the link failed.
