I was thinking of doing a rashguard type swimsuit for my daughter, and the testing call came from The Wolf and The Tree for one. Good timing!
This pattern was made at a 7W, 12L based on the chest and trunk measurements.
I lined the body of the top and the full bottoms.
She wasn’t quite sure about it the bottoms, though. I don’t know if it is the lining I used, or perhaps I needed to size up the bottoms. I think they are a little tight, so she may need a larger size in width for the bottoms. I lined them, since exposed seams on the bottoms tend to be uncomfortable.
This swimsuit has a lot of options to it. It has 160 different combinations. Different bottoms, color-blocking for the top, sleeve options. If you are looking for a more modest swimsuit, this is a good one to buy (it is $8 for the release sale).
I bought some custom swimsuit fabrics, but didn’t use them for this swimsuit, since it was a test version. I am planning on making some more, but…time. Softball and baseball have one more month, but it is mostly weekly practice and then the state tournaments on the weekends. I *should* have some time during the week now to sew! Yayyyyyy!
