I’ve already made a selection of 30 lovely swimsuits you can buy. Now it’s the time to show the patterns you can use to make your own swimwear.
This summer it is my goal to make my first swimwear myself. It’s something I wanna do for so long. So I can wait to wear my first swimsuit. In a few weeks I’m following my first workshop and it will be about swimming clothes. I can’t wait…(click on the images if you want to buy them..)
Let’s see which patterns are available. (NOTE: it’s not a complete list! You’re more than welcome to help me elongate the list)
