Stunning unitard with scope to add interest with colour and patterned fabrics
I sewed View B for two different sized girls. This is not the pattern to choose for a beginner but if you have experience of other Jalie dance or skating patterns you will be delighted with the result.
My tips; sew princess seams from the bottom up. They can be done on a serger. However the seams will line up much easier when sewing the bodice to the lining if you use a sewing machine on a stretch stitch.
Pattern states elastic is not be be stretched when applied to arm hole, neck edge or
Lower racer back strap but both times I had to stretch the elastic slightly to fit but not the neck edge. I thought the first time was down to my using a serger but I had the same issue when using the sewing machine.
Assembling the back instructions were confusing, this is the reason I say not for a first time Jalie user. It’s the bit a bout Barr tacking the elastic edge at the bodice sides throw me.

End result is very pleasing. The girls looked great and I had many compliments and request to make for someone else.

Confusing Instructions.
My first problem with the instructions is that NOWHERE does the elastic lists or notions list include the elastic for the straps (of view A). The only mention of it is in the instructions when it suddenly says "Sew elastic to the wrong side of the strap with a zigzag stitch". I don't know what width of elastic to use, and of course I didn't buy it when I shopped for my other notions. I can assume, since it says to sew without stretching, that I need 2 pieces of elastic as long as the straps, which are 36" each. So, two yards of elastic not mentioned in the notions list.

There is also no mention in the instructions of sewing a seam into the ties to separate them into two channels, although it is illustrated in sketch 22.

My new favorite pattern
My new favorite pattern. The pattern is really east to follow and ends up looking exactly as it's supposed to. I had a bit of a trouble with the strappy back, but the zip front option is a winner. Had to size down the top for my daughter, but I've already made 3 different options of this unitard.
