Looks brilliant but a bit tricky to put on
Looks brilliant on but a bit tricky for little ones to go to loo, I found the back a little confusing at times the small bits not the cross over, but we got there in the end and each one I did got better .

The cutest sportiest leotard she has!
This leotard has a very tight sporty fit that's perfect for gymnastics. I will say the first one I made per my daughters measurements I felt was too small, however after making her a size larger we both prefer the smaller one. At first she thought it was too tight (high up) on her neck but after wearing it she says it's actually quit comfortable. She loves the back (and so do I, it's so cute and shows off her back muscles well) and the fact that it fits so nicely she NEVER has to adjust while in it which is a BIG no no in gymnastics. The accent stripes on the front curve perfectly to the body and it's just such a sporty and cute leotard. She gets compliments every time she wears them.

Has great potential
I love the look of this beautiful leotard but as a few have said, I would much prefer if the back was a single piece. For me the simpler the better. Also, my 6 year old puts a lot of strain on the leotard because the criss cross back makes it harder for her to get on. As a result she has popped the collar stitching twice by pulling so hard. I am a novice leotard sewer so perhaps others may know better how to avoid this - but I did follow instructions using a zig zag stitch along the collar with the elastic once to attach and again after folding over. I wish there had been a simple back alternative without a criss cross. 3rd complaint is the pattern size lines were not color coded and it was time consuming straining my eyes to find the right line. Took forever. Finally, for me, the leg line was a bit high for my daughter, so I would adjust this to a more modest level next time (I recommend cutting a lower fit because you can always make it higher later). All that said - it is a very pretty leotard, I just won't be creating a bunch of these in a hurry. Size and fit was like a professional leotard.

Love this pattern...
I have several of this biketard for my two granddaughters. They fit like magic and look adorable.

You should see the pictures.

My Go-To Pattern
I fell in love with this pattern from the moment I saw it. However, like my baking skills, I have a tendency to do things my way. Instead of having 2 pieces for the back, I just lay the one piece on the fold and make it one piece. It always turns out perfectly! My daughter is a competitive gymnast and this is the perfect way to make these. All children are built differently. The best way to customize any of Jalie's outstanding patterns is to put a leotard on that fits and measure where the front legs curve from the crotch area. Then make sure you do the adjustments in the pattern. For example, while your child may be a Size Q for the front, you may want a lower leg opening and choose the P size instead. Just make sure you curve it with a pen naturally to fit the P size. Do the same for the back to meet up with the P in order to make things even.

Its ok, I like other Jalie patterns more
Though this looks very cute, the pattern its self is not intuitive. I put things together and had to take them apart a couple times, and I REALLY didn't like that the back bottom section is in two halfs, as it is constantly up my little ones rear end. She doesn't like to wear the leotards I made with this pattern, and I don't blame her. We have two others by Jalie, and LOVE LOVE LOVE them, but this one was a real bummer. On the up side, its real cute, just up the rear all the time. Doesn't work out for a comp gymnast!

Fantastic Pattern
I've already made this five times for a four year old and a seven year old. They made me go to the fabric store with them so they could pick out their own fabrics. LOVE THIS PATTERN!

Great pattern
This pattern like all Jalie patterns was easy to use. It did not get a 5 stars from me because I did not see when to sew the front yoke onto the rest of the leotard for VIEW C. I am guessing it is the first thing you would do. Thanks, happy sewing!
