announcing swimsuit weeks

I’m not sure about where you guys are at, but the nice weather has finally decided to stay around here north of the border, which means that we’re also starting to enjoy more and more in the water! Every year, I have the same issue, I need to make more swimsuits.

I used to think sewing swimwear was for those expert seamstresses that seemed to know everything about sewing. But after sewing my first swimsuit a few years ago, I quickly learned that sewing swimsuits is just as easy as sewing with any other knit fabric. It’s a skill that, at times may seem tricky or finicky, but once you spend a little bit of time on it, you’ll turn out amazing results and you won’t want to go back to store bought swimsuits ever again!

So in the hopes to help all of you out there that aren’t sure how to tackle swimwear sewing, those that just want a helping or for those that are looking for a resource to fall back on when they’re in need of some info, we’ve devised a plan for you guys this summer! We’re hosting a two week series and sew along (starting today) to help you with all your basic swimwear needs. If you’re not ready to sew quite yet, that’s totally ok, you can always come back to this series as a resource guide for any future projects you may have.

We’ll be tackling both girls and boys swimsuits throughout the next two weeks, from fabrics to patterns to a step by step guide on sewing a pair of swim trunks and a swimsuit.

We’ve divided the next two weeks into trunks and swimsuits, this week we’ll be focusing on swimwear for the boys, talking about swimwear trends, patterns and also including where to purchase the ever elusive board short fabric!

We’re also hosting a giveaway!! Thanks to our generous sponsors, we’re be offering three amazing prizes, perfect for those that haven’t gotten their supplies yet for this summer’s swimwear making. Make sure to enter below for the giveaway and check back tomorrow to see what we’ll be talking about!
