So happy you decided to check in and Dive into Swimsuits with us!
My kids live in swimsuits during the summer. One year, it's literally all Lucy wore.
I get a little sad when I hear ladies say they have never tried swimwear or that they are scared to try sewing swimsuits. I just don't know why...?
It's like saying, "I'm scared to eat candy." Crazy, right?
Sewing swimsuits is fun, economical, easy, and I think if you just try... you'll wonder what you were waiting for.
So... I've gathered a bunch of friends to help me talk you into trying it! This week, you are going to be hearing from some of the best designers in the business! Seeing some amazing show offs and reviews. Reading lots of tricks, tips, and tutorials and hopefully... we will motivate you to try your hand at a swimsuit. It can be for yourself, your child, a friend... whatever! It can also be any pattern!
That's right! I didn't want to limit it to just our patterns, because we only have three and they are all one piece. That leaves so many other designs and people out. So you can do women's, men's, boys, one piece, two piece, tankini, dolly swimsuit, leotard, whatever. YAY!
Don't worry. We will give you time to finish your suit. You will have until June 11th to finish and photograph your suit. Also, the winner won't be chosen by who made the prettiest or best suit. You just have to participate and upload a picture to be entered. The winner will be chosen randomly!
If you're not a member yet, come over and join our pattern group. That is where we will be doing the sew-a-long.
And now... Here's Brooke!
Hi! My name is Brooke and I am super excited to say I was able to test the NEW Lakehouse pattern. Even though I have been sewing almost 20 years I have never ventured into knits until now. Thank you so much Nicole for being able to test it and being able to review, not just 1, but 2 of your patterns! So come check out my review of it and her Bow-A-Licious pattern as well.
