I found some ruffle fabric in the clearance section at JoAnn's a few months ago. My little girl is in swimming lessons and needed another suit.
I made wide straps and made sure that it was high in the front and back. It is so hard to find a swimsuit that fits little girls--hello people they don't need drooping necklines or open backs just to get more sunburned or show things they shouldn't be!
Back to the swimsuit. I found some coordinating swimsuit fabric at Hancock and made some boy-shorts for the swim bottoms. I also lined the ruffle fabric because it is too sheer for this purpose.
She loves having the option of another swimsuit. I'm gearing up to make a full swimsuit. Any suggestions?
