Well that's not true I have the leotard & I am going to adapt this to see if it works

Wish me luck!

For yourself? For gymnastics or out on the town?

Good luck!

For DD, for vocational dance college wink

No one would appreciate seeing me in one

SoupDragon Fri 19-Aug-16 19:56:38

Was scrolling down with anticipation for some after photos....

Oh dear...

Never mind it's always good to have a go at these things looks at baby hat, I tried to knit that would actually fit a baby elephant

Would a shelf-type bra be easier? I've done this with the Nettie bodysuit by Closet Case and it wasn't hard at all.

Bra making is a complex business and unless it might cause injury to do otherwise I'd avoid it (but I am lazy!).

I've been doing shelves in leotards for years but DD is now a ff and spends most of her life in leotards so this summers great project was to make bras & leotards with bras in - we are mid-Aug & I haven't managed one to fit yet

So I may need to go back to the drawing board

I really need someone to bounce ideas off but I am by myself here really (DD is always at work 10 or 11 hr shifts & DH 'does not' sew at all wink)

I have a pattern from my course - doesn't nearly fit DD, a pattern from the internet - maybe tomorrows attempt, the leotard bra (not a success - maybe I went about it wrong) & a pattern from Canada via Sweden

I also have a Craftsy tutorial......that I can't get my head around sizing & a an online tutorial about geometry that I don't understand

But the bra I made is pretty, useless but pretty

I've been doing shelves in leotards for years

Your DIY sessions sound far more interesting than mine wink
