Our Swimsuit Kits take the guesswork out by putting together everything you'll need to make a beautiful swimsuit using your own pattern. If you need a pattern, we have a great selection on our Patterns Page, both paper and downloadable.
It's the middle of the summer, and you want a new swimsuit that fits you just right. What's a bra sewist to do? Make your own! We have created a limited number of swimsuit kits to see if there is any interest in using our amazing custom fabric printer to make custom swimsuit fabrics. Two of these fabrics are identical to their lingerie cousins. Cherry Pie is also available in bamboo jersey and Shibori is available in cotton jersey. One of the prints is scaled just right for a one-piece swimsuit, but would just be a little too big for a bra. Shades of Green is beautiful watercolor ginkgo leaves in all sorts of shades of teal through chartreuse. It is stunning.
Each swimsuit kit comes with
- 1 yard of poly lycra swimsuit fabric,
- 1 yard of white stretch mesh (white keeps the colors most true),
- 4 yards of 3/8" swimsuit elastic,
- 1 1/4 yards of 5/8" plush band elastic and
- 2 foam swimwear cups.
You can add a swimsuit pattern if you'd like and be all ready for your next beach party!
