Navy Jalie Camisole 3131 and Gradient Waves Knit Skirt

Summer calls for pure comfort and this tank and skirt combo fits the bill perfectly. I love a simple cami with an easy pull on skirt. Easy to wear for day and transition into my daily yoga practice at night. The cami is Jalie 3131 which I’ve made 3 of at this point. It’s a simple tank with a built in bra meant to be finished with fold …

Summer Swimwear for the Kids

I wanted to share a quick post (with tons of pics!) showing off all the summer swimwear I made for the kids.  The kiddos grow so fast lately I need to make new suits every season. I let them pick out the fabric prints (though I try to steer them to coordinating one’s) and then make up a bunch all at once. All the Details- Fabrics from The Fabric Fairy (click on …

Navy Medallions Rashguard

I’m back this week with some more swimwear to show you guys!  I made this rashguard back in June and it’s gotten a ton of wear this summer. I love wearing rashguards- great sun protection with none of hassle of applying and re-applying sunscreen. I find the fiber content in swim material gives great coverage even if it isn’t UPF rated as long as you choose a darker color.  Which is …

Nautilus Tankini

Here’s my second version of the Nautilus Swimsuit by Seamstress Erin Designs altered to a Tankini.  This was my second tester suit and originally was the one piece version, view A (images below). My body fabric, a blue swim spandex, was just not working.  The body was pulling down the top and the shine on the fabric was just not doing it for me.  I decided I’d try to salvage the …

Nautilus Bikini

I pattern tested this swimsuit design way back in May and have been eagerly awaiting the release to share it with you guys!   This is the Nautilus Swimsuit from Seamstress Erin Designs.  I’ve been following Erin’s blog since I first started sewing and was psyched to test out this new pattern, especially since I’m at the beach or pool almost year round.  You can check out all the amazing swimsuits from the …

Flora Girl’s Skirted Swimsuit

I’ve been slowly improving my swimwear sewing and drafting skills this past year and here are the results.  The perfect little swimsuit for my daughter Amelie!  Ami just turned 4 last month and has been growing like a weed!  She’s been obsessed with wearing the same outfit lately, her purple sparkly swimsuit- plus leggings – almost every day.  I’m thrilled that she loves the swimsuit I made her …

Sarah and Ava Swimsuit

I love sewing swimwear!   Here’s my latest suit using two fabulous patterns from Ohhh Lulu , the Sarah Longline Bralette and the Ava Highwaist Panties.  This suit is so comfortable and supportive! Perfect since I’m always swimming with the kids who are usually hanging all over me in the water.  Also super easy to breastfeed in this top.  One of the reasons I wanted this pattern was for a …
