Based upon the images provided with this pattern, I was expecting an openback option with the horizontal "bra" strap. However, that is only an option for the top. I had to redraw the back panty and the back side portion for an open back. Pattern is a good fit, but I made changes.

I had been looking for a specific design which i was unable to find but found this gem and just altered to suit! Great fit, sizing is accurate! Easy enough instructions.
Love this crop/leo. Canyon's is one of our go to patterns for leos and the occasional crop. I usually skip the under layer and just use a solid front, but have also used a variety of floral stretch lace materials over matching or contrasting lining .
I’m not a seamstress but a do it yourselfer. I searched high and low for this general style. I love it. I will be making a few tweaks as that’s just how I am but it turned out great. I have 3 more in the pipeline.
I love this leotard pattern. My daughter loved her leotard,too. Looking to making a lot more.
I love this pattern and fit perfectly with no alterations on the two girls I made matching tops for. The mock neck directions were a bit hard to follow. Once I got a better explanation (the designer was very helpful) I still couldn't get the neck to not twist. I ended up sewing the necks the way I've done mock necks from other brand's patterns.
