Peek-a-boo Swim Suit4:00 AM
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.
The design is basic and simple, but sewing swimwear can be tricky and frustrating.
Here's a great link for tips on sewing swimwear if you're just starting!
