I purchased this galaxy swim fabric last summer from Zenith & Quasar (no longer available) with good intentions to make my daughter a swimsuit with it. I didn’t end up getting to it, so I wanted to make sure I got one made in time.
She said she is over two pieces where she is showing her belly. I guess she thinks it is too big?? I always thought that way growing up, so I get it. I told her she is not fat (like, really?? I have to tell her that???), but I made her a design of her choosing so she is comfortable.
I showed her several suits on Pinterest and she chose a design that had flounces in the middle. I drafted up this design with the halter and split the front and back pieces to be able to insert the flounces (which were cut in a continuous circle). The flounce fabric is a sample that is not available to purchase yet. I will blog about it if it gets stocked. It was cute for this!
It is fully lined so the seams are all covered.
The bottoms are fully lined, too, and have elastic at the legs.
This is a good suit, since all 6th graders have a waterpark outing at some point before school is out.
This will have good coverage. 😉
