I wanted this pattern set to be fun & spirited! It will offer different methods of applying elastics and trims to really get the most out of the set. The leotard will also function perfectly as a swimsuit!

4-way stretch is best for the leotard, and smooth knits with a moderate sideways stretch will be adequate for the wrap top & wrap skirt.

Please, don't let the need for athletic knits prevent you from trying this pattern out! It's a really fun collection that I think you will adore adding to your sewing repertoire. Follow along step by step on some or all of the pieces. From my cutting table to yours...

*I use AG dolls Lanie, My AG, Marie Grace & similar to draft my patterns.

A-OK to Sell items you create from the pattern When you Credit me w/ Design.~ THANKS!
