Of course there had to be TWO: Kwik Sew 2724

This is my Supergirl!

Otherwise, it’s also basically a replication of a very recent post. The pattern is Kwik Sew 2724, gym leotards again, but in a smaller size for Miss Four. This time, I learnt from my past mistake and didn’t make the tall timber adjustment (that I would normally do for this child). I sewed her a straight size 5 in the leotards, and a straight size 4 in the bike shorts.

For a cheap and cheerful stitch up, the fitting is near enough to good enough for me, although I still feel it is a tad too long in the back (sway back adjustment required?). I could probably also narrow the hips and bum a fraction next time to get rid of some of that excess crack fabric.

 

 So for others planning to use this pattern, the sizing is definitely long in the body.

 

 

Don’t you love the way kids have that ‘special’ smile they reserve for use in front of the camera! I’m pretty sure she is trying to cross her eyes too.

 

But she does have some swagger!

 

The fabric I used was the most gorgeous swimsuit lycra from Tessuti. Unfortunately it was the last of my stash. I’d previously used it here. The slick metallic silver spandex was from MOOD.
