I’ve made this swimsuit too many times to count. The first time I made it was in 2009 when my girls were four and I sized down the pattern to a size three (skinny kids). Now, I’m making the size seven (seven! how did they get so big?). The version I have only goes to size 7 but I was lucky enough last year to stumble across the larger version too so now I can make lovely swimsuits al the way to size 14. This is a great Speedo-like swimsuit. There is a second version with contrast panels. I’ve never made that but I think it would be great if I could find some contrasting fabric that looks good together.
I made four swimsuits; two, one-piece suits and two, two-piece suits. I was afraid they would be too big because the girls are a bit on the small side and not yet seven. Here are awesome Vogue poses. I covered their faces because there are some weirdo creepers out there. I bought this fabric a long time ago from eBay.
I used my sewing machine to do all the stitching because the serger threads seem to break all the time and the zig-zag stitches seem to never break.
We are gearing up for our March cruise!!!! I need some swimsuits too!!!!!
