Today we are showing off the super adorable Two Piece swim pattern, 'Beachy Keen', by E-Beth Designs. This pattern has a variety of options including Tankini, BIkini, plain shorts, and skirted shorts. The top can have a ruffle or fringe detail, but you can also go with a simple top with no accent.
The pattern comes in size 6m-14.
Nicole made the tankini with fringe and the skirted shorts - so cute!!!
*Although you can't see the 'shorts' on this suit, Nicole said that she did make the leg opening a bit more fitted for her daughter's slim legs. This is an easy alteration to make and a great thing about making your own suit.*
I made the Tankini with shorts and a basic top. I found the construction easy to follow, and I love how little fabric a swimsuit takes!!! I decided to embroider a mermaid on the front of this suit to amp up the plain purple. I LOVE it, so sweet.
For me, the rear coverage and leg openings are PERFECT!!! My girl has muscular legs and quite a booty, I love that these shorts gave her full coverage in the rear while not cutting off the circulation of her legs.
One of the things I like about this suit is the halter strap - it is a connected strap rather than a tie - this gives me as a mama a bit more confidence that we wont be having any wardrobe malfunctions at the pool.
I think when I make another of these suits, I will add an inch or two to the length of the top. Mack has a serious tummy (increased by taking pictures immediately after a large pancake breakfast ;op) She also carries most of her length in her torso, so this suit has just a bit of belly poking through, she's still a cutie though ;o)
Hope you enjoyed seeing the two different versions of this cute suit. How is your swim sewing coming???
