Long-Sleeved Bodysuits

This is going to be a disproportionately short post for something I wear so often- I made this bodysuit a couple of months ago, and wear it every week. Here’s the thing, though- I originally made two, wore them all the time, and then one just… Disappeared. Vanished. I don’t know how I lost a whole bodysuit, but hopefully I’ll find it soon.
