Cosi Swimsuit and Raglan Rash Guard

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.
