 Amy at Nap Time Crafters is having a spring blog tour of her Peek-a-boo Pattern shop!

Today's stop is one of her many swimsuits for little girls.

I reviewed Amy's Sun n' Fun Swimsuit for toddler girls all the way up to size 12.
It's a basic swimsuit with the optional ruffle shoulders and bow back detail.
It's nice to have a basic pattern as a base to use for future variations!

Following the pattern's size chart I sewed a 18 month size for Ellie.
It fit well and I think next time I'll cut a little extra room in the bum as she's not potty trained and has to wear a swim diaper that gets big and bulky when wet.
For now it's a great fit in the bum over a dry regular diaper.

I chose not to add the ruffle sleeve or bow in the back, so I cut the back scoop 1.5" taller on the back.

I'd say this pattern is advanced beginner.
The design is basic and simple, but sewing swimwear can be tricky and frustrating.

Ellie loved her new swimsuit and didn't want me to take it off!

  3. This is one of the two swimsuit patterns I don't have from Peekaboo. :) Last year was my dive into swimsuits... For Nikki, who was a year old, I made the Kwiksew suit pattern--crossed straps and ruffles on her diapered bum! This year, well, I have the fabric, but haven't picked which pattern yet. I figure that their Mommy can pick the pattern, and I'll just whip it up! (I'm just their Auntie who takes care of them while Mommy and Daddy are at work.)

  8. This is adorable, and seems like it would be a great idea for the gangly girls. My sister is a really skinny 6 year old, so swimsuits are too big on her... Looking through the Peek-A-Boo patterns though, I'd like to see the "Hangout Hoodie." It's adorable! I love that it could be for a girl or boy, too... Hmmmmmm.... (See, this is the problem with following all the awesome bloggers - it makes me want to do nothing but buy patterns and fabric & sew all day!)

  9. I love this little swimsuit pattern. It's surprisingly difficult to find toddler swimsuits that have an appropriate amount of coverage. The back bow detail is adorable.
