This is my twist on the free Retro Playsuit pattern from www.hotpatterns.com
To allow for the gathering at the waist with elastic I lengthened the bodice by two inches, I think it really needs to be at least three inches longer (than the original pattern). In my next attempt at this playsuit I will lengthen it by three inches and I will add facing to the front & back as well as use self fabric to make the straps – I think it will be more durable.
