Here you have it...the tankini.  This is a pretty basic swimsuit, but it is so nice since the top has full coverage.  I'm not a fan of the hoochie swimsuits for the Pre-K set.  Wink

The file is a pdf, so you will need Adobe Reader to see it.  It may take a bit to load due to all the pics, so be patient.

Here is the swimsuit I made while doing the tutorial.  As you can see, she always stands still so nicely for me when I'm taking her picture. Wink


Here's another I made, too:

 Smiley That looks great! My mom made my sister and I matching bathing suits when I was a kid and I loved mine so much I wore my sisters when I grew out of it.  This one has a nice modern twist, and the fabrics you chose are really cute, too.

I work at a pool and I agree about the hoochy swimsuits. Your suit is WAY cuter and much more age apropriate than the triangle bikinis I often see on little girls.

I adore this!  I think I am going to have to make my daughter her swimsuit this year.
Thankfully she doesn't even like bikinis and having her belly exposed (unless she is running around the house in her panties Roll Eyes ).
I'm off to read the tutorial.  Thanks for putting it together!

Thanks all!

The thing that is nice with two piece swimming suits, is the whole potty thing.  Trying to get a little one out of a wet one piece suit because they have to go potty RIGHT NOW is not fun.  Muuuuuuch quicker this way. Wink

now this is the kind of bathing suit young girls should wear.  It's very lovely!  If I had a girl, I'd make one.. .but I only have boys.. sigh...

She looks adorable.  I really like your fabric. 

Thank you for the tute!  I have some swimsuit fabric I received in a swap a while ago but have yet to do anything with it.    I was going to try to wing a pattern but this is much better.  Smiley

Thanks StacyCK. I'm going to try it as soon as I finish some other projects. I agree with this being more appropriate for a little girl. I don't even think adults should wear some of the types of bathingsuits that are available for little girls. I think little girls are dressed to look much older these days.

Adorable and thanks for the tutorial, I never really thought I'd be okay with my girls wearing a two piece but this is perfect. I thought I'd struggle with the "gotta go now's!" forever. I can say that I've had plenty enough accidents with the five of them to say that this is moving to the top of the "need to sew" list.

Thanks so much for the nice compliments on my daughter. Smiley  I'm also glad to provide you guys with a more age appropriate swimsuit idea for your little girls. I know how challenging it can be trying to find something in the RTW.

I love it!
Why do I love it?
1. It is modest
2. It seems to be a higher back-less sunburn
3. It has a longer torso-no waist burn when they play in the sand
4. It covers their butt, and the front.
5. It has a higher neck line-less show, less burn.
6. No worries of anything showing that shouldn't be showing at that age!

I wish more moms would quit buying the hoochie clothes for their girls and leave them on the shelf at the store-maybe they would get the point and quit making them grow up way faster than they need to be!

i love this and in all honestly if i was going on holiday this year and i could get that tankini in my size i would wear it! i'm not a fan of any revealing clothes on young girls to be honest it just looks a bit trashy, i've never understood why the parents allow it. anyway, as i'm typing i've noticed the title says there's a tutorial  Grin Grin Grin happy bunny!

Thankyou sooo much! My little girl just isn't built for the suits available today, they ride up and end up showing waaaay too much!

I look forward to making some cute functional suits closer to warm weather time!

Thanks!  This is great - I'm definitely going to do this after I finish the two lap quilts I have lined up to make!  (Or maybe before if I don't get my 1/4" foot . . . )

This is great and thanks so much for the tutorial.  My little one is in the water all summer so being able to make her swimsuits is great!
