The playsuit:
-added two inches to the length, at the chest
-used twill tape instead of bias tape for the snap facings on the crotch

-took ten inches off the elastic recommendation for each leg

The cover-up:

Both pieces turned out adorable! Dd definitely needs more of the playsuit this summer, and the cover-up may be the cutest ever.
