I designed this swimsuit for my daughter. The fabric is my own design. The fabric design is for sale in my spoonflower shop. Please note; spoonflower does not print on swimsuit fabric.

* Swimsuit fabric (swimsuit)

Instructions:
Download the free sewing pattern from the list below. Set your printer settings to A4 paper.

When working with knits, it is important not to stretch or pull the fabric while sewing. Also use a stretch needle and a stretch stitch. In this pattern (nearly) all seams are sewed with a twin needle.
