Classic Maillot

I'm not really a "stop at one" kind of gal, so of course I had to make another swimsuit for this tour!

During the tour Designs by Call Ajaire is offering 20% off all patterns in the Etsy shop using the code SWIMTOUR
Gracious Threads is offering 15% off the purchase of 3 or more patterns in her shop (no coupon needed)
The Wolf and the Tree is offering 15% off patterns in her shop using the code SWIMTOUR as well.

I went with the Classic Maillot and after seeing this version from Penny Sew Vintage I couldn't help but hack it into a bikini. I just cut it at the "lengthen/shorten" line front and back for the top and made the briefs. Super easy and adds a whole different look! 
The yellow and white stripes swim I bought from Peek-a-boo Pattern shop and the Bubble dots are from The Fabric Fairy.

We couldn't help take more inspiration from Vintage Sew Pony's and add the straps in the same place too!

I'm wishing I had had some board short fabric on hand to make Jess' Swim & Surf Shorts. I have a feeling they're going to be very well loved when we do get some!

Make sure to take a few minutes to visit Call Ajaire, Gracious Threads, and The Wolf and the Tree and of course the rest of the lovely blogs we have on the tour:

  1. Another winner! I love it as a bikini - so cute! If I weren't so nervous about sewing with swim fabric, I would want to try it myself :)

  2. I love this photo shoot Karly! And the fabrics are really cute together too. I definitely have to try this now that I found a good fit for Gigi . She wants a two piece and this is so perfect.
