Cosi two piece and an EARLY CALL FOR PATTERN TESTERSApril 18, 2014
Here is a two piece view of my upcoming pattern: the cosi swimsuit. You can see the other two pairs I have made and my pattern cover here.
Below are the line drawings of each of the views for this pattern. Each view can be either made halter neck or with adjustable crossed straps. The leg frills can be added to any view (except View D). Pattern is sized 6 mo - 10 years. It can be made fully lined or with just a lined gusset.
Some of these photos are not great as I snapped them inside late this afternoon, but I wanted to get this post published today so that I could put out an early call for pattern testers before people got busy with their easter weekend! This pair needs to be altered a little - notably, lowering the waistline a little (although they will still be high waisted compared with standard briefs/bikinis).
I don't remember where I bought this fabric - it has been in my 'stretch stash' for a while. It is lycra.
My pattern will not be ready for testing until some time next weekend, however, since great swimsuit fabric can sometimes be difficult to find, I thought I would select my testers this weekend so that they could go ahead and get their fabric organised before the pattern is ready to be tested. I will invite selected testers to a facebook group where I will let you know the supplies you will need and also give you some tips of good online suppliers of swimwear fabric.
If you would like to test, please only sign up if the following applies to you:
- My child fits in standard sized clothing for age (ie. is three and size 3 ready to wear clothing fits very well)
- I can sew the swimsuit and give feedback (including photos of suit being worn) within a week of being provided with pattern.
If you would like to test, please sign up HERE. I will notify testers by email in the next two days. TESTER CALL NOW CLOSED THANK YOU!!
Thank you and let me know in the comments if you have any questions!!
