Sew Your Own Retro Swimsuit

 

Retro swimsuits happen to be all the craze nowadays, especially the ones with bra tops and high waisted bottoms.

Personally I find them attractive and cute and although my petite physique isn't made for wearing one, I love pinning and stacking them onto my board here.


If you don't mind getting a '50s glam beach look, I selected some fabulous {and free} retro swimsuit tutorials for you to sew.

Very cute. I don't wear swimsuits much anymore. Have an allergy to the sun so can't even get out and enjoy it like I used to. I caused a lot of damage to my skin during my childhood and into my 20s that I'm paying for now. :(

So sorry to hear that Tammy! I cannot imagine summer without being at the beach, because we all love swimming, but when we are out we try to avoid the sun as much as we can.

I too love the beach and the retro bathing suits. I so wish I could sew. I was taught when I was a teen and had no patience for it!
Enjoy the weekend! :)

Thank you Julie! I sewed a bikini for Eva several years ago and it was a nice experience considering it was my first time working with spandex.

I didn't know you can sew your own bathing clothes at home! Like you, I am petite too and so I don't think they would look good on me either although I would love to wear one of the one-piece bathsuits. They look very cute. :-)
