This posting is for Pattern 1322, the Sleeveless Leotard! It is a sewing pattern intended to assist crafters with creating their own sleek leotard using either my website’s instructional blog or my YouTube tutorials to guide them as they construct the project.
The pattern does not include snap placements, as number and placement of snaps will vary widely depending on the wearer's preference, and what items you chose to place on your leotard. Snap instructions are nonetheless included in the blog and YouTube assembly directions to give you a place to start, and you can embellish or edit as needed. It is highly recommended you read my blog or watch my YouTube tutorial for information on putting your leotard together. ^_^
The Sleeveless Leotard pattern does NOT include: sleeves, collars, bows, skirt, accessories, hair bow, etc. Please view my other listings for those patterns!
This is for the digital PATTERNS ONLY. This is a DIY or "do it yourself" listing. No refunds are available for any digital downloads. Photos of finished products reflect items that can be made using these patterns.
This Pattern 1322 is intended for size Extra Large, as referenced in my size chart. Please refer to the size chart in the product photos to find your size. If you find you are between sizes, it is generally recommended to buy the size that fits your largest measurement, and then make alterations to the pattern in areas that are a bit smaller. No two bodies are quite the same, so I always recommend to make mockups so you can make alterations before moving onto your actual fabrics.
Each pattern contains only one size, but it does come with three length options for torso AND chest, so you can mix and match to help find a closer match for your height! If these height options are still not quite long or short enough, I am happy to assist on how to shorten or lengthen a pattern. Just let me know, and I'll do my best to help explain it through email. ^_^
This is my first run of the new sizes. As I collect feedback, I may opt to update the patterns at a later time. For this reason, all patterns as of 2021 and on are labeled with a special code, so that you can always check to see if you have the most recent version. The SKU for this item is: 1322-XL-02100022. The last 8 digits are marked by the grain line on each pattern panel- this is your pattern version number.
If I update to a newer version later, you are always welcome to message me so I can send you the upgrade for free. If your pattern is from 2020 or earlier, you will not have a pattern code, but can also upgrade. Simply tell me your order number so I can confirm, and I will be happy to upgrade yours also.
•••File and Printing•••
All patterns are recommended to be printed on 8.5" x 11" paper. The patterns are formatted as PDF files and this pattern has a total of 34 pages.
Always print at 100% or "true to scale" setting. Do not select "scale to fit" or "poster", or else your scale may be off upon printing. You can use the ruler in the patterns to confirm that they have printed to scale. Metric and imperial rulers are provided.
WHEN PRINTING, DO NOT PRINT FRONT AND BACK. Be sure to uncheck any setting that will cause your printer to print front and back, since you will have to cut the patterns out. It is not necessary to print the guides, vocabulary, etc. if you wish to conserve paper. It is also not necessary to print in color.
