I made this bodysuit, wrap around top and skirt from a pattern purchased on Etsy.
It turned out well, although I must admit this is my second attempt at the bodysuit. The first one didn't turn out so well. I chose a less stretchy fabric and even though I accounted for Lane's long body, it still wasn't anywhere near fitting her. So we went back to the fabric store and picked out a much nicer, prettier lycra and this one fits perfectly.
Here's an action shot.
She had her first class on Saturday and to say she was excited is a gross understatement.
She loves her new teacher Miss Nanci and she is taking the class with a few of her pre-school classmates. Awesome!
Here she is on her first day. She wore a bodysuit with a fancy tutu design sewn right into it that she got from another dancing queen who grew out of it. :)
During her first class the teacher suggested that each dancer bring a bag with their ballet and tap shoes and a sticker book in it to class. They get stickers after each class! EEEEE!! Lane really liked that.
So I surfed Pinterest for awhile and found the cutest dance bags ever and then made one for my little Dancing Queen.
The bag is wearing a tutu! :D
Personalized with her name in purple felt.
Lined with Lane's favourite Sesame Street fabric.
Phew! My little dancing queen is all set!
