The cosi swimsuit: PATTERN RELEASE (with discount) AND GIVEAWAY

June 11, 2014


After three months of hard work, my cosi swimsuit pattern is finally finished!!!  Hooray!!  Just in time for summer in the Northern Hemisphere.  I am so excited! I hope you love it!!

Here is an overview of the pattern:

It is sized 6mo, 12mo, 18mo, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 &10 years.

It is a sweet and modest swimsuit for little girls with vintage touches - the lower cut leg line, high waisted briefs for the two piece views and the ruched centre panels on Views A and E.

In total, here are seven views which you can see here.  Halter straps or adjustable cross back straps can be made for any view.  The leg frills can be applied to any view.


The pattern is printable separately in that you can print all the one piece views, the peplum view and the two piece views as separate patterns so that each printout only prints 12 pages.

Easy to assemble pattern with colour coded pattern pieces.



Coloured photos with annotations and detailed instructions for each step.



All measurements in metric and imperial.

Tips for sewing with swimwear fabric and a short list of great fabric suppliers.


PURCHASE:  You can purchase my cosi swimsuit pattern from my sewpony Vintage etsy shop, and for the next 3 days (Until Saturday 10am Melbourne time) you can receive 10% off with the code: COSIRELEASE10.

GIVEAWAY: And now on to a fun giveaway!! I contacted the lovely Megan from the awesome on line fabric shop  - the fabric fairy to tell her about my swimsuit.  She has offered one of my readers a $30 gift card to her shop!! Here are a few of her lovely prints...


My giveaway is also includes a free copy of my pattern.  If you choose to purchase a copy now, go ahead and if you win, I will simply refund your purchase. Open internationally - and finishes on Sunday 15th June at 2.30pm Melbourne time. I will announce the winner soon after.
