In previous post I mentioned that I'd made an RG tester leo, but hadn't taken any photos. I've rectified that now, so here it is:
It is hard to get on, fits very well and she likes it. But really, she needs to move into size10 (this is a size 8). I think it all depends on the lycra used as to the fit, as much as the pattern size. For example, her last year's velvet one still fits just fine - and it's a size 7. Trial and error continues to be the way forward, it seems. Just as well I have so much lycra stashed away.... lol.
