Kwik Sew 2724: Just another little leotard

I have some big, exciting dreams on the burner right now, which means that my mind is not really on creating wardrobe staples. This particular staple for little Miss Five, is a gym leotard for the Summer months. I’d been promising it for a while, mainly because her Winter suit is a little small around the legs (and I’m too lazy to make the comfort modification given she has a smaller sister following behind her).

 
The pattern I used was Kwik Sew 2724. Despite the fact that I’ve had such a rotten run of poor fit with this pattern, I still really like it for what it is, and that is, a quick and easy sew. I cut this version in a Size 6. I took a gamble with the size because my heart wasn’t in customising it for her. The length fits her quite well (as I predicted), but there is just too much room in the width (as I also predicted). You can see all those horrible wrinkles and excess fabric in the crotch and bum. I should have simply lengthened the smaller size.
 
In any case, this child barely stands still for more than a second at the best of times, let alone when she’s doing gymnastics. So in all her jumping, skipping, tripping, and tumbling, I think it’s highly unlikely that anybody will ever notice how poorly her leotard fits. Phew!

    Yes, she goes crazy at gymnastics. She's completely unsuited for the sport with her height but she has so much fun, and it's good for her coordination. And like you say, a great thing about three girls in a row is the feeling that I am getting the most wear out of all their clothes. I like to see holes before the last one is through with them! 😉
