I love making swimsuits for my girls and I wanted to design one that was different from my first swimsuit pattern. This one is MUCH easier to sew, but still has that adorable WOW factor with the bow. The bow can be worn in the front, the back, or left off for an adorable leotard or quick swimsuit. This swimsuit is sized from a 1/2 to a size 16. Options are given for a lined crotch, a shelf bra, and a full front lining. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY This is a great beginning swimwear pattern, but you should probably have a couple of knit projects under your belt.
