here is the first leotard I made and I have to say it came together easily in one day
not so with leotards 2, 3 and 4
I’m still not a fan of that fuzzy lycra (my machine didn’t like it either) so I switched to this thick organic cotton/lycra ( 90% organic cotton & 10% lycra ).
I redrafted the pattern and took the neckline in by reducing the angle of the shoulder seam, and I used a thinner (1/4 inch) softer elastic.
It’s still not perfect, but it’s better.
