The Lakehouse Swimsuit Pattern

We released our Lakehouse Swimsuit pattern for girls today!
Thank you so much to our beautiful cover models.

Our Lakehouse Swimsuit comes in sizes 1/2- 16 and is just darling as a swimsuit, but also doubles as a leotard pattern. Now that Lucy is in competitive gymnastics, we need a lot of leotards.

I got this leopard fabric from one of the fabric warehouses in Dallas and I just LOVE it so much.

I love being able to make her leotards, because she lives in them.
She really wanted this shot on the cover of the pattern. :)

I also love that you can use three different fabrics on this suit. I laid out EIGHTEEN different choices for fabrics. There are so many versions I want to make!

I made this one with the leftover scraps from my Mom's swimsuit. It's so pretty and has little silver glitter lines on it.

Our testers knocked it out of the park on this one, too. You are going to see some of this week if you follow along with our Dive Into Swimsuits week.

Here is a schedule of all the bloggers and designers that will be joining us in the fun!

I hope, so much, that you will sew along with us, as well. Starting tomorrow, I'll be adding some tutorials to get you started. I'm so excited!

If you still need to pick up a pattern, we have all of our swimsuit patterns on sale this week. But it doesn't have to be one of our patterns! Maybe you want to make a suit for you or use a pattern you already have on hand. It doesn't matter. Just sew a long with us!

And while you're shopping for suits, don't forget the dolls!
We have all of our dolly patterns on sale, as well.

Here's a shot of our girls dressed up in suits I've made over the years.

Our Lakehouse Swimsuit for Dolly also released today.
Our dolly version uses fold over elastic for the band and bow to make it quick and easy!

My girls love it so much when I make them matching dolly outfits. The smiles and "thank you, Mom"s are the best.

Is there anything sweeter than a girl and her doll?
