What do you do when you need a leotard and all the ones at the gymnastic stores are super expensive.
Well, you make your own of course.
I could have done this a lot cheaper than I actually ended up spending. I had to do it twice because the first time I did not get the right fabric, and it would not stretch enough to go on. Then I went to High Fashion Fabrics and it made all the difference getting a 4 way stretch fabric. This one here if made right the first time ended up costing me only $15. The cheapest one I found at the store was $37 and went all the way up to $90. I like the cheaper version.
I think it turned out really cute, and now that I know exactly what fabric to use it will be much better for the next one. I love the look of the flower, however, it might be better to use a more flat one like an appliqued poppy or something instead. I think this would get in the way when on the bars if she were a little older.
Now, if I ever make another one, I will try and take pictures to make a tutorial. However, I don't know when and if it will happen, but just in case I do I will add a tutorial for it on this blog.
