Baby bikinis

I'm not sure what fashion guru declared war on 1-piece swim suits.  It's dang tough to find one that's not super frumpy and I'm really not the bikini wearing type.  However, my 20-month niece has just the right body to pull this off.

I used another awesome pattern by Ruby Jean's Closet.  This was my first time ever sewing w/ bathing suit material and it wasn't bad at all (I do have a serger so that made it easier).

  7. Oh those are SO CUTE!!! I love the fabric colors! Thanks so much for sharing at Thursday's Temptation.

  8. We really like the style, the thickness of the plastic and
    the way they feel on. Some just don't feel good, have scratchy
    plastic or pop easily.

  9. How was the fit using swim fabric? I'm considering using this pattern for my daughter, but it calls for wovens and I want to use swim fabric.

  10. yours turned out so cute. I tried doing this with swim suit fabric and the bottom of the top curled up :(
