A Great Swimsuit!

I am completely happy with how my swimsuit turned out. I made view D and sized up because I was lining it. I am an advanced beginning sewist and I was very intimidated about making my own swimsuit. It went together much faster and easier than I expected and I know I will be making more versions.

Cottesloe swimsuit

I did View B, lined it and added the shelf bra. It is my first suit, I do water exercise and this suit fits the bill. The fit is overall very good, but I do have some wrinkling on the front straps in the armpit area. Don't know what to do to fix the pattern for this
Maybe a small dart?
I did foldover elastic because I like the sporty look and it is so easy to put on. And it comes in so many colors. Looking forward to adding many new suits to my exercise wardrobe

Perfect for beginners with amazing possibilities

For over a year I have been wanting to make myself a swimsuit but I was too scared to go ahead and do it. Now that I've made the Cottesloe swimsuit, I wish I had done so sooner. This bathing suit is INCREDIBLE. It's simple design really creates the perfect foundation to learn and to customize the suit to your needs and preferences, whether that's by adding cups, ruffles, using a bold fabric or hacking the design.

I made the highwaist bikini and I am obsessed (so are my friends) and this was just a toile to make sure everything was working. The pattern really walks you through everything you need to know, encourages hacks and is so clear that I felt super confident making the design, as well as wearing it. I cannot recommend this pattern enough. I loved wearing my swimsuit and cannot wait to make more. I will be coming to this pattern over and over again!

Great purchase

I bought this pattern for a class I was taking, I made view B one-piece. It came out great and fits perfectly! I might try the two-piece with a different fabric and turn it into an undies set. Anyways, great pattern and great purchase!
