Ombre Ponies


I hope you're not sick of swimsuits yet because they're going to be a pretty big staple in our wardrobes from here on out! 
I've been loving making them too. They're pretty quick to whip up!


So first up, the fabric is a Preorder from Snowy Owl Custom Fabrics. It's a flash round and closes April 13th (Friday the 13th) so if you're wanting some, don't miss out!
It also comes in Cotton Lycra, Woven, Stretch French Terry, Minky, and Canvas, so if swimsuits aren't your thing, you're pretty much covered for whatever project you would want to make!
I was sent 1 yard of the Ombre Ponies and 1 yard of the Sparkly Ombre Coordinate. I was able to get all 3 swimsuits out of it and probably have JUST enough to eek out a bikini for Paisley. 


For Aevarie I used Lil Luxe Collection Peach Beach swimsuit in size 10. Can I just say how sad I am going to be when she grows out of this pattern?? She's been growing out of patterns left and right. It's seriously not fair!


I love the bow detail in this pattern! I also chose to make the pattern as-is (GASP!) and I didn't make adjustable straps in the back. Mostly because we just moved and I really didn't feel like going to the store to buy more rings and sliders and my stash is somewhere in the abyss of boxes. LOL


As I mentioned before, Zoe has a sun allergy, Polymorphic Light Eruption. So I make sure she's been getting rash guards. We've made quite a few Boo Designs Swimmers ones! I made her the size 9 with 10 length.


Last is Paisley. She's been loving the longer sleeved swimsuits too to keep the sun off of her. A few years ago I made her a tutu swimsuit and since she grew out of it, she has been begging me for a new one. 


I made her the Boo Designs Sleeved Leo straight size 7. 
I did line every single one of them. Since a mishap of see-through fabric when I first started I have ALWAYS lined all their swimsuits from now on!


The swim fabric was a dream to work with and we even had someone ask us where we got the swimsuits while taking pictures.
The girls loved testing them out.
Don't forget the preorder ends April, Friday 13th and they even have a gorgeous blue Sea Ponies print too!
