So I’m just going to be upfront here. You are about to be overloaded with cuteness. My obvious intent was to showcase Miss Six’s new tutu-togs. Sidekick is wearing the pair I made for Miss Four last year. I wrote about these ones here. They are faded from extreme wear, but the lycra was top quality and is still going strong.
Sewing swimwear isn’t difficult, but it can be a wee bit fiddly at times, especially when you make little bitty things. I used Kwik Sew 1615 for this pair and started out with a size 7. The fabric was some gorgeous Anna and Boy lycra I picked up from The Fabric Store when last in Sydney. The pattern changes I made are as follows:
- lengthened the body by 3cm (above the tulle)
- shortened the shoulder straps
- added a contoured seamline at the hips (where I could add the gathered tulle)
- removed the bottom back seam (under the tulle) and cut on the fold instead
A little bit of extra booty from Miss Two before she shows Coco how to rock the house!
