Sewing Adventures: Ballet Wardrobe!

More sew and tell! Here’s a ballet ensemble I made a few weeks ago. The leotard is made from the free Liberty Jane Swimsuit pattern, and the shorts are from Liberty Jane’s Yoga Pants pattern. I was intending to make a sweater to match, but I ran out of fold over elastic. #bummer. Marie-Grace, my dancer, is modeling the outfit.

IMG_0408I was so lucky to have matching fold over elastic and accent fabric. It unites the pieces together.

IMG_0409As you can see, the shorts have a yoga waistband. The leotard has a straight neckline, but I can see alterations being made in the future!

IMG_0410Sans shorts. I might have to make some tights for her from my old ones, eventually, and maybe buy some ballet slippers. Hmmm.


Neck strings view! Again, I can see many “fancy back” alterations. Sew many ideas, sew little time!

  1. I really like the way this fits Marie Grace – I imagine it took some precise measuring! And I like the square neck!!
