I’ve already made the other view of the Jalie pattern. That is the strappy unitard. Remember how I told you that “the other twin would want one”? Well, here’s the other one. I was right about the popularity of these unitards. The girls are big fans and both “needed” one. This is View A and it is very different than the other one. This one includes a zip front and a partially open back.
You can tell this is a little big. They are long and thin. They measure in the L size range for the bust, waist, and hip but in the O range for the length of their torso. I knew this would fit with negative ease and I didn’t want to have to lengthen the torso. I really love how it turned out.
One thing I forgot to tell you about in the first leotard is the interesting crotch construction. The back piece is very long and basically makes it’s own gusset. The seam that would normally run on your inner legs is pushed up toward the front so that they are near the front of your thighs and not the middle. That probably doesn’t make sense but look at the pattern pieces and it’ll make more sense.
What’s next? I don’t know. I think swimsuits. The twins’ swimsuits are old and they don’t fit well. AT. ALL.
