This one

Amazing what fabrics can be found at Spotlight...

Tink says this one is really comfortable and fits the way she likes.  I think it will do for training leos, so will stick with this pattern.

Sizing it up

Well, this is a size 8... consensus is that we go with this size but tighten the leg elastic and redraw the neckline and armholes to be higher.  Somewhere between the 7-long and 8-narrow, I guess :)
Resizing for Jess' leos will be done with the aid of my fabulous neighbour, Clare - who is a certified expert, as Jess has grown in all directions, not just up!

No surprises here...

... it's a leotard, lol!
From the lycra stash, checking for size as Tink has grown again - but in the body for a change!  This is a size 7.  Feedback from gym class today tells me she needs a size 7 long or a size 8 narrow...

Just can't beat the holographic lycra, and lime in particular never fails  :)

This is the new addition to the doll cabinet

Isn't she just beautiful?  A showcase of a gifted talent for dolly making and dressing.
Gifted to me, very generously, by my dear friend Sarah - who now makes amazing art quilts.
