Gymnastics Tank Leotard Pattern review

Remember the Jalie leotard I sewed up for my daughter? Well, I sewed up another of Jalie’s patterns. And here’s a little spoiler:

I LOVE IT!!

 What I am posting about today is the wearable muslin. As with the other pattern, I knew I would have to make some adjustments to the length. My daughter seems to have a really long torso. Only I didn’t know how much until I sewed it up.

She measured a size 5 in the chest, and a size 7 in her hips and waist, so I graded it out as I traced the pattern. When she put it on, she couldn’t stand up straight because it wasn’t long enough, so instead of trashing it, I cut the leo in half at the waist, and added a 4 inch panel! It now fits her perfectly.

I then went back to my copy of the traced pattern, and made adjustments, so next time it will be one whole piece. Although, I do like the way the band looks, too.

Pattern details: This one is a bit different than the Lillie pattern. The one big change that my daighter is in love with, is the binding instead of elastic around the arms and the neckline. I must say that I also like that part. It adds a pop of color, and it is a smooth fit.

This pattern comes in 22 sizes which span from girls to women- obviously full of awesome right there. It is available in PDF or paper, like all of Jalie patterns. It also comes with applique pattern pieces that I am going to use for the next leo I make.

Since this is a sport that my girl is passionate about, and she will be doing it 5 times a week, I am beyond thrilled that I can custom make her beautiful leos for her workouts that not only look great, but fit her like, well… they were made for her.

This pattern is a keeper. It is simple and customizable and it was super easy to make fit adjustments if you have someone who needs them.

*Although Jalie provided me with this pattern, as always, all opinions are mine, mine, mine. I really love sharing the wonderful products I find, with all of you.
