The Cosi Swimsuit by SewPony Vintage has been on my to-sew list for ages.
A quick google search will bring up countless darling versions and will give you the itch to sew one up too.
I love all the options it comes with- two piece or one piece and multiple color blocking choices plus a version with a ruched center piece. They all are so retro and cute!
I did the view F bottoms and added faux piping in the seams. For the top, I used the one piece pattern and chopped it off to hit as close to the top of the bottoms as I could. I wanted the look of the two piece with the modesty of a one piece.
We have so many versions planned come summer! It’s a fantastic pattern with great instructions and so, so many options.
We also adore rash guards and I love how simple they are to make.
I used the Recess Raglan from See Kate Sew. I take it in under the arms a bit to be more fitted and line the front in swimsuit lining.
So perfect for hitting the waves!
To finish her look, she got a new cover-up. I used the Kelli Kimono from Made for Mermaids. I followed my women’s version (the Patterns for Pirates Summer Kimono) as a guide to make it robe length and to add a sash sewn onto the back. It’s out of a lightweight sweater knit that matches her suit perfectly!
I’ll leave you with my new favorite picture of these two! There’s such admiration in his eyes- he sure loves his big sis.
