Hello, I'm looking for links for Dance Wear patterns. I found www.jalie.com and really like some of those, but I can't find any others. Thank you

One woman. One sewing machine. One giant stack of fabric. What could possibly go wrong?

Sorry I forgot to mention that lol. My daughter takes Ballet, Jazz, and lyrical. I would love to make the leotards, dance shorts and crop tops for her to wear to class.

Kwik Sew and Jalie are a good bet.
If it's your first project, I would try the KwikSew first. Also double check the pattern against a garment that fits. Especially so in the childrens sizes.
I used to sew team uniforms using a Kwik Sew pattern, and the first year I made the leotards up in all the sizes and had the girls try them on. Most ended up with one that was 2 sizes up from their measurements.
Also do a search on Etsy, there's an a designer called tumblentwirl that has some really fun and current dancewear patterns.
Check thrift stores and Etsy for out of print Stretch and Sew patterns, they are similar to Kwik sew, I'm using the same ones for my grand daughter that I used for her mother.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Kwik Sew makes some awesome leotard and catsuit/unitard patterns. I'm really happy with my projects from them

I adore Jalie. Plus, the huge size range means that you won't have to purchase any larger sizes in future.
