Suit Up For Summer Blog Tour Day 4

It's day 4 of the Suit Up For Summer Blog Tour and I'm back with another ME suit! It is #memademay after all! I'm also sharing a kid's suit too, but since it's so rare that I actually make or blog anything I make for myself, I'm totally showcasing that!

The Sophie Swimsuit by Closet Case Patterns has been on my "to make" list for quite a while now and this was the perfect push to make it! I absolutely adore these pineapples from Peek-a-boo Pattern shop (currently unavailable but more is being ordered!) and I knew this had to be my Pineapple Bikini. I do wish I had had some solid black to colorblock with, but I still really like how it turned out in all pineapple.

 This suit has a ton of pieces. I ended up cutting out 18 main pieces, 16 lining, 16 powermesh, and 7 bra foam pieces. I didn't want anything showing that shouldn't be showing, or anything moving that I didn't want moving. I totally think it was worth the work!
Have I mentioned how much I love this print??? Pineapples and stripes, so my favorite thing ever.

Yesterday I said that I was making each of my girls swimsuits to coordinate with mine, so one of my girls was definitely getting a suit out of this print. Aev's was the winner, on account I've already made her two swimsuits that I didn't quite add enough length too and don't fit her....This child needs to stop growing!

I went with our all time favorite, the Cosi Swim Suit. I sewed up view B and had the lines in the middle line up as the opposite from both sides. I love playing around with stripes!

I love doing the adjustable straps, and well, with how fast this kid grows, it's really no wonder!

I come back to this suit because I love the fit on my kids (minus Aevs suit last year because I made that suit for Zoe and Aevs just INSISTED that it fit her. Children.) I also love all of the options I have. One piece, two piece, colorblocked, leg frills, skirted. My girls just love it.
