Have you tried sewing your own bathing suit yet?
I know, I know. Sewing you own bathing suit can seem so DAUNTING. And I don’t doubt for one second that it would be extremely difficult if you are sewing things like underwire or cups into a lining. But if you want to try dipping your toes into the handmade bathing suit world, you could always try making the free tankini bathing suit pattern. It is a flattering fit for most body types, and is a great beginner sewing suit pattern.
I rounded up some RTW bathing suits that I loved, and am sharing similar fabric that I found, for you to make your own! Because why buy it, when you can MAKE it?! (Lol – I swear I don’t use that motto…anymore. Sometimes, it’s totally worth buying!)

Have you, or have you ever thought of sewing your own bathing suit?
I know it takes some courage, but give it a shot! You will never know until you try. It took me years to screw up the nerve, but once I did it, I was so happy! Not only that, but I got loads of compliments on my suit, with people wondering where they could buy one of their own. So go ahead, give it a try! Worst case scenario…you’ve got yourself a sunbathing suit for your backyard that only you, your kids, and the inflatable kiddie pool will see. Ha!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
