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

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

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.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

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.
