Day three of the Suit Up For Summer Tour is here! I’ve got a little blog miracle happening today- you get to see a rarity around these parts. My oldest is joining in the fun!
He’s headed to the sun for spring break this year so he was happy to get a new swimsuit. I love this classic Leaf Outline boardshort print. It’s a print that works great for everyone and looks fantastic with a little pop of color.
I used the 5 out of 4 Men’s Swim Trunks with a couple easy modifications. He wears a mens medium in ready-to-wear and fell right into the size medium for these too. I always think that’s helpful especially when sewing for others. I added grommets to the outside so we could see the functioning drawstring. I also shortened the length per his request. The pattern is a fairly quick sew and the tutorial was very straightforward. I needed a sewing win and these delivered!
These fit just like he was hoping. I’ve gotten to the point with him that I don’t dare buy him clothes anymore since he’s extremely picky. To get his approval on this suit is a MAJOR mom win! (Cue the confetti cannons!)
These trunks will work so great for him. They can go from the pool to the hamburger joint no problemo!
That’s five kiddos in mama-made swimsuits! We better hit the pool stat! I’m so grateful for RCF that I could get fabrics that speak to each of their personalities and tastes. I love that they can coordinate without being too matchy matchy (they would die of embarrassment at this point!).
Have you been speechless at the amazing suits this week? I can’t get over the incredibly cute looks each and every day. Today is no exception!
