The 4-way stretch in this fabric allows the leotard to move easily in whichever way the doll is moving, allowing the doll flexibility to move comfortably in each ballet dance step and gymnastic move she makes!

*The American Girl doll is NOT included. This listing is for 1 basic black 18 inch doll leotard.

For the 18 inch American girl doll that dreams of earning the lead role in a Nutcracker performance, a Swan Lake performance, and of becoming a prima ballerina, she knows she will need to work hard, stay dedicated, and practice... practice.... practice. To help her achieve these goals she will need a stretchy leotard that fits comfortably and moves as she moves. This handmade leotard is a great fit for the 18 inch dolls! Who knows, this may become your dolls life career, dancing across the stage!

In one of the pictures above the American girl doll Emily is getting ready for ballet practice by raising her leg up to the bar and stretching. She wants to be ready for all the new steps her teacher is going to teach them in todays class! In a few of the other pictures you can see Emily is practicing these new steps. She then puts all the steps together to perform the new dance shes learned! (The ballet shoes and tutu shown in the pictures above are Not included in this listing, but can be purchased in my artfire store, or by contacting me for a custom order.)

Of course, this leotard is also great for the doll that simply loves to play dress up and dance around the house. Add a tutu (not included, but available in my artfire store) to give the outfit some color!

Do you know of an 18 inch doll that loves to do cartwheels, round-offs, and handstands? Or maybe shes always walking on a line or sidewalk crack with her hands outstretched pretending shes on a balancing beam! If so, she probably dreaming of becoming a gymnast, possibly even an Olympic gymnast, and what better way to get started then with the basic black leotard!

Emily is back and now shes practicing her gymnastic routines! In the first picture she performing her floor routine during a competition. The others pictures also show her stretching before her routines, walking on the balance beam, and on the uneven bars! It looks like shes having a lot of fun... theres a smile on her face throughout each routine!

Do you, or your daughter or granddaughter like DIY (Do It Yourself) projects? Heres a great DIY idea to go along with this basic black leotard. Purchase iron on decals, appliques, or rhinestones from a craft store, and iron them onto the black Leotard, to give your leotard your own unique, customized design! Or you might even what to try fabric paints for a design all your own! (Iron-ons and fabric paints are not included.) Plus, if you place the same design on multiple leotards, then all the dolls you know could join together to make a ballet or gymnastic team!

Another great idea for this doll leotard is to use it as a bodysuit! Ive had customers purchase the leotard along with a doll poodle skirt. This way the doll could wear the 2 pieces together and it looks like a fitted shirt with a skirt outfit, but when the doll wants to do gymnastics or ballet, just take off the skirt, and presto she has a leotard again! Using the leotard in such a versatile way is a great way to mix and match to make more doll clothes outfits!
