Be Bold Bodysuit will have you feeling fierce in any option. This classic tight fit bodysuit is meant to feel snug and act as the perfect tucked in top without worrying about coming un-tucked. With all the options you’ll be able to make a perfect bodysuit or crop to pair with any bottoms- skirts, pants, overalls, casual or dressy. You can pick from a higher or lower neckline on both the back and front. You can also take this pattern from the hot summer with the multiple tank options to the cooler weather with longer sleeve options. You can finish the neckline with a simple picot elastic or with a lining and shelf bra. Moving down you can have multiple bottom options as well. You can do a thong or brief plus pick if you’d like the seam in the traditional back spot or add snaps with a front seam for ease of snapping. The bodysuit is partially lined so you can use the bodysuit as your undergarment.
