My First Swimsuit

This week, I sewed up a swimsuit for our oldest daughter.  To be honest, I was sort of dreading this, but I was pleasantly surprised on how easily this sewed up.  I was amazed and thrilled.  I know I’ll need to sew up many swimsuits as the years go by, so I’m thrilled that it was easy and not something I would need to dread.  LOL  This is the very first swimsuit I sewed up and I have some changes in mind, but this will work great for the girl’s swimming lessons.  I think that for the summer swimming at the lake, I would make the skirt a bit longer.

Swimming lessons were going to start yesterday (Sept. 18) and I didn’t really start to sew the suit up until Wednesday evening.  Talk about leaving it to the last minute!  I had the top done and the skirt was almost done, I just needed to measure S.’s waist for the elastic.  Yesterday morning, I finished the skirt and had S. try it on.  The top was a little on the small size, but it still would work until I sewed up a larger top.   Then as it turned out swimming lessons had to be cancel because the pool was experiencing power troubles.  All that rushing for nothing!       Next week, I hope to sew up a swimsuit for R. and a new top for S.  Also swimming lessons are to start next week…

I’m pleased to have learned that sewing with swimming suit material is not at all difficult!

  1. That looks great! I've always been nuervous about sewing swimsuits too. Good to know that it's not too difficult! Great job!!:)

  2. What a lovely swimsuit! I ordered mine through, but their prices are so high and it doesn't really fit that well. I will check out the patterns! Where did you find such beautiful swim fabric? I really like that it is feminine and not loud, like most are. Great Job! Don't you just love when sewing comes out good?!

  3. Thanks! I was really pleased with it too. 🙂 It is so fast to sew up! Last week I sewed up one for Rebecca. 🙂

I love hearing from you!!
