I’ve got a problem people- I can’t stop sewing swimsuits. It’s seriously so addicting. They’re quick, take such little fabric and we spend so much time in them that I feel like it’s so worth it. Plus my swim knit stash keeps multiplying and there is no way I could pass up testing the new Mermaid Shores collection from Made for Mermaids.
I’m splitting our suits into two posts simply because I have soooo many cute pics to share with you! First up is the Lainey, a cute one shoulder two-piece suit with optional ruffles at the neck or waist.
For my version, I did the neck ruffle and added a tiny pom pom trim to the edge. This border print was just perfect for this suit. So perfect that the pattern piece for the top barely fit in between the borders and the ruffle piece was almost the exact measurement of the border. Seriously meant to be! My sister picked up this fabric at the SAS warehouse in Phoenix.
One of my favorite things about all the suits in this collection is the bum coverage. So, so good! No wedgies here!
The Lainey comes with a crop and tankini top options. This little one is adorable in the simple crop version with the ruffle bottom.
The whole Mermaid Shores collection is all about mixing and matching and these Lainey bottoms pair so well with the Calypso top.
The Calypso is a two piece suit with optional ruffles on the top and high waisted bottoms.
It’s so darn cute and easy to sew too! This is the smallest size (1/2) on this tiny miss.
I love being able to blend sizes easily to get the perfect fit for my girls. This one is a 6 chest with 7 hips and 8 length- an easy blend using the instructions in the pattern. You can’t get that kind of fit in an off the rack swimsuit!
I can’t tell you how much we adore this whole collection! I’m so excited to share our Camila’s with you tomorrow!
