Skip the hassle of store-bought swimwear and “if only this part were different…” critiques. We have three swimsuit tutorials for you and three tutorials for your daughter so you’ll both be sure to find the right design and fit without any ifs, ands, or buts! Get to sewin’ so you can get to swimmin’!

No Big Dill






















We think this Big Splash Swimsuit from No Big Dill is kind of a big deal…try it out and let us know what you think!





















“She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny…” okay so it’s not yellow or a bikini but this polka dot one piece is awesome. Everyone loves the cross-back detail!

Sew Delicious






















Here’s one for all you moms with toddlers! Like all of these patterns, this swimsuit can also be easily adjusted for older or younger children since lycra is such a forgiving fabric.

One Avian Daemon



















We hit the jackpot with One Avian Daemon. She gives you a variety of different patterns, from a one-piece to multiple variations of tops and bottoms. She’s got something for everyone!

Sew Mama Sew





















This suit, complete with ruching, is a flattering style that has stuck around for a while now. There must be something to it! Try it out for yourself and hit the beach.

Fabrication Pollination





















Fabrication Pollination has perfected the vintage look with this DIY High-Waisted Bikini. She must know floral is a hot commodity in this summer! Perfect combination of a blast from the past with trending detail.
