Leotard pattern?

Postby Velvetsteph » Fri Jul 15, 2011 8:31 pm

I'm half inclined to just make this up - but if there is an easy (free) online pattern available then that would make life easier ;)

Basically Isabelle does Gymnastics and really enjoys it but she's still doing it in shorts and t-shirt which is fine really but we are hoping she earns a badge this time around and she will want me to sew it on something ;) and I've got a fair bit of hand-dyed bamboo velour waiting to be used so I thought I'd try my hand at making a leotard!!

I want it to be fairly low cut round the legs (so not high legs as I don't think that's a good look on a 5yo!) and can't decide whether it should be long sleeved or short sleeved... 3/4 or 1/2 sleeves would probably be best though I think but I've never sewn sleeves before :lol:

Its sleeveless, but it is high legged :wink: Sleeves are easy enough to make though, just trace around the sleeve of a tight fitting t-shirt :D

Failing that you could just trace around a swimming costume to make a leotard pattern (thats what i did to make Acacia's tinkerbell costume).
