Sneak Peeks... 1 of 10

Yes, T-E-N new patterns (pattern-numbers-to-be 3129 to 3138) will be in our warehouse before the end of the month!

As usual, I will show you pictures of one or two patterns every day or so until they are all available for pre-order on our website.

Here are two pictures our new gymnastics tank leotard and biketard (3138).

View A has a regular leg (we made the front and back two different colors on this one and used the front fabric for appliques in the back and back fabric for appliques in the front):


View B has a boy leg with a crotch panel (design similar to discontinued pattern 2317).


A simple design that sews very quickly. We used the 3024 binding technique for the neck and armholes and finished leg openings with elastics (View A) and topstitching/coverstitching (View B).

For the butterfly appliqués (that we sewed to the pattern pieces before sewing the leo together), we used our brand new Sizzix machine with the butterfly die set. If you like the appliqués but don't feel like buying the machine and die, we included a butterfly pattern (along with maple leaf and parallelogram designs) in a few sizes on the pattern.

We hope all gymnasts / gym moms / coaches (and all of you who were sad to see 2317 go) will be pleased with this pattern.

Coming up, 3130... A classic...

Adorable!! I love the boy short version. I've been looking for one like that for my little gymnast.
