Instructions and sewing pattern for a girls’ swimsuit and bikini
This sewing ebook includes three variants of a simple, straight-cut basic swimsuit:
– a rather girly version with small flounce
– a very simple, sporty swimsuit
– and a sporty bikini.
Difficulty: All three models are sewn quickly and need very little fabric.
However, some sewing experience (especially with stretchy jersey materials) as well as an overlock machine are highly recommended.
Fabric: Use only stretch fabrics.
The e-book includes 34 colored pages (DIN A4, pdf)
• 17 pages detailed photo instructions with many sewing tipps, fabric information, etc. Even if you’ve never sewn swimwear, here everything is explained.
• 10 Pages of patterns in 11 EU girls’ sizes* (98, 104, 110, 116, 122, 128, 134, 140, 146, 152, 158)
• design examples
• add-on: the sewing pattern itself also comes as a large format pdf for plotter (with German labeling)
The swimsuit is designed for children who do NOT wear diapers. Therefore, it is unfortunately NOT suitable as a onesie pattern for older children.
Please note: My sewing patterns don’t include the seam allowance, it needs to be added when cutting out the pieces.
All measurements are in centimeters / meters.
The EU-sizes used convert approximately to these US-sizes:
68=6M • 74=9M • 80=12M • 86=18M • 92=2T • 98=3T • 104=4 • 110=5• 116=6 • 122=7 • 128= 8 • 134=9 • 140=10 • 146=11 • 152=12 • 158=13 • 164=14 • 170=15
European sizes are based on children’s height. If you know your child’s height, just convert it from inches to centimeters and select the EU size according to the height.
