This blog entry is more for my own records than for interest, as I am aware that making boys gymnastics clothing is not a popular global pastime!
My son trains 3 times per week, and his club gear is expensive, so I have persuaded him to wear gear that I have made him. Naturally, he would prefer to wear his club gear over and over without washing, but I am trying to get good habits in place before those teenage hormones kick in!
This leotard is my design, although I did restrict myself to a simple tank style because that is what he is used to. It looks a little big in the straps. Part of drafting a tank style is reducing the length of the straps to account for the reduced width. Reduced width results in less rebound tension. I understand all this, but I do not yet have a grip on how much to reduce the strap length. On the up side, he will fit in the leotard for longer.
The colours are his club colours.
