Why do they sell long sleeve leotards (you know with no legs) and sleeveless unitards (shorts built in) but NOBODY sells long sleeve unitards? I mean is it just a thing that's been socially banned for some asinine reason I can't possibly fathom? Because my girls get cold in gym so they like long sleeves but we do NOT do leotards. Damn things ride up the ass crack pretty much always. And at 4 and 6 the girls aren't the most modest when doing their acrobatics all over the place. So what is a mom to do? Yup.. Make long sleeved unitards. Fun note... there is at least a good pattern out there. I used the one by Mountain Ash Designs.
The print chosen is gorgeous. The damask and the gorgeous Adventure Time fabric were ordered in preorder from Knitorious Fabric. If you are in love... sorry... it's not available anymore. But after making myself a sweet little tank top I had enough scraps to whip up these unitards for my little ladies.
These were a last minute decision for using up my leftover fabric and were barely completed in time for gymnastics class. Which we ended up late to anyhow thanks to the Kel...
We did get out and take some decent photos but Kel was super jealous of the little shoot so he had to sneak in a shot as well.
See that devilish grin? Yeah there's a little demon spawn attitude to go with it. Cute as a button... but boy is mean as a rattle snake and about as annoying as a gnat on a horses ass. Not accidentally either. He's a pest on purpose.
