Perfect and easy

This was easy to make and the instructions were very clear. I’d never seen spandex or done a spandex overlay before this and it came out really nice.

In love with this pattern!

This is a great pattern! The design is gorgeous, quick & easy to sew, several different options to make all kinds of leotards. I’ve made a few options already with more cut and ready to sew. It fits the dolls perfectly and is just like a real gymnast leotard. Thank you so much for this pattern.

Another Pixie Faire Winner

I loved how easily this pattern sewed up, and the fit was absolutely PERFECT. I liked that the back neck was low cut enough that I didn't need to add a closure, but not so deep it looked "disrespectful". I paired it with a tutu I made by knotting tulle over a strip of elastic and the two together were sooooooooo adorable!
