But I did manage to make Maia's suit. In the morning she was quite cooperative, and happy to try on the bottoms (using my boy briefs pattern). By the evening? Not so cooperative. But lucky for me I still have one agreeable child. The tank is the racer back style I'm working on.
This was the first experience sewing with spandex and it was both easier and harder than I expected. Weight wise it's pretty hardy so I didn't have to battle with curling edges like some thinner knits but the four-way stretch flumoxed me when binding the top and resulted in some distortion. Overall, it's a pretty passable effort and I'm crossing my fingers that Maia comes around because she doesn't have a suit either!
