If your Layers dialog is missing, re-create it with Dialog->Layers from your Tutorial Shirt window, or File->Dialogs->Layers from the main Gimp window. You will need it for this lesson. Open your Blended Upper Body Template.xcf file - or whatever you chose to call it.

There's an awful lot of information in the Blended Templates (now Tutorial Shirt) file. Click on the eye symbol for each layer, and watch the Tutorial Shirt window.
