Two sample pages from the book
This book is appropriate for beginner to advanced levels of sewing ability, and is written from both a designer, and former “performance” athlete’s point of view. It will teach everything from the basics, to tricks of the trade. "Spandex Simplified : Sewing for Gymnasts" will prepare the reader to design and make almost any design of practice or competition leotard imaginable - artistic and rhythmic are both covered!.

Given the cost of decent competition leotards, this manual can more than pay for itself with the savings from just one project!

The entire book is written completely in laymans' terms and carefully explained, step by step. Only basic sewing knowledge and talent is required. Learn everything from measuring, to easily creating ornate applique designs, to embellishing the finished suit in one book! For a complete table of contents, and more info, click here.
