Best Indie Swimsuit Patterns

Every summer for the past two years I have made myself a new handmade swimsuit. I love the process of making swimwear and I have so much fun wearing my me-mades to the beach! This indie sewing pattern roundup is all about swimwear! Let me know if I missed your favourite! I will be sure to add it to the list 🙂

If you haven’t tried sewing a swimsuit yet, don’t be shy! It’s really fun and not as hard as it looks, trust me. You can totally make a beach worthy swimsuit in an afternoon! I look forward to sharing this year’s swimsuit project on the blog soon! I still haven’t picked a pattern yet!

Here are my swimsuit projects from previous summers – click on the photos to see the full post 🙂

Gorgeous suits! Thanks for including the Grace Tankini!

This is great! I wasn’t familiar with all of these. Jalie also has a tankini and a racing style one piece. They are older but still good patterns. I’ve also used a workout top pattern as a tankini top. I look forward to seeing what you make this year. I have supplies for a few suits, too, but got busy making other things. This post is like a helpful pep talk to get back to those.

Helen, what for a great swimsuit tour!
Thank you, I’m impatient to see witch one catch your eyes for the 2017 season.

Helen, what a great collection, i like Sophie Hines Euler Bralette. Super good.
