I got to sew up some swimsuits for Samara! Yay! The Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Aloha Burn Blocker. These are super cute, and so much better than a bikini for a baby. Yeah, I don't even really put a bikini on me, let alone put one on my baby girl.
How cute is this little surfer suit?
I have to say that sewing with swimsuit fabric... super hard! It is so slippery!
The directions are great and easy to follow too. She gives some suggestions with sewing the zipper onto the fabric (like not using a zipper foot) makes it so much easier!
I love the fabric! Hurrah for the local discount fabric shop! Swim fabric at Hancock Fabrics was 16.99/yard! The blue at the discount shop was 5.99/yard and the purple was 2.99/yard! Not UPF rated, but that's ok. I set up the umbrella and douse the sunscreen. Or you can head over to Amazon and search for UPF fabric by the yard.
After sewing the short sleeve one, the long sleeve one was much easier!
Looking at these makes me wish we were close to a beach!
The pattern is being released TODAY (3-6) and is on sale for today only too!Click here to visit Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop.
