Swim Fun!

This summer I decided to be adventurous and try making bathing suits. I read a lot about sewing with swim knits, ordered some fabric, bought a pattern, and jumped right in! Why is the unknown always scarier than the reality? As long as you use the right stretch needle and set your machine correctly, it’s a breeze! I used the Coco Cay Tankini* from Peekaboo Pattern Shop. Then I realized she would need a cover-up and decided a dress version of the Hangout Hoodie* from Peekaboo would be perfect!
