Thanks for giving us some hints on how to make our own drafts! I'm always hesitant to work with knits because of the negative ease factor. I like hearing about successes, they give me confidence to try this myself.

Adorable! What a wonderful gift for her. Looks like she will get a lot of use from them.

Very cute!! I'm sure that the other kids in her class went home to ask for their mom or dad to make them some too!

These are really great looking! Your designs are fantastic. You have a very lucky little cousin!

Very nice! I bet she is the envy of her classmates with her cute outfits custom-made for her. I'm impressed that you enjoy sewing Spandex and tiny things. Your success helps me think maybe I could even try something for my granddaughter.

Thank you! I used a sewing machine (Bernina 1090) for most of it. The shorts, black leotard and green leotard are serged - only because my serger had black in it and I was too lazy to change! I did the elastic with a medium zigzag and I used 3/8" swimsuit elastic.

Wow, Cara, these look fantastic! I hope we get to see you lucky niece wearing these. Did you do all of this with a sewing machine?

Very impressive! I've been using a Jalie swimwear pattern for unitards (2317) but I like your design with the side insets better.
