Peek-a-Boo Patterns La Jolla One Piece Swimsuit

I got to test another pattern for Peek-a-Boo Patterns.  Yay!  This time it was a swimsuit.  I know sewing a swimsuit sounds scary, but she makes it so easy.  As you know from this post, I've used one of her patterns before for a swimsuit and really liked it.  This one is even easier.


I started with some super adorable fabric from Girl Charlee.  I spent hours and hours trying to find the right swim fabric for inexpensive enough.  Then I remembered Girl Charlee and fell in love.  They have so many great fabrics for a great price.  That is where I found this fabric.


Don't you just love that lace detail!


I cut into my maternity swimsuit for the black, since I didn't know what else to do with it.


I'm so glad I did.  I just love the contrast of the black bows.


I made the headband using a tutorial from my favorite blog.


I love how it turned out too.



My bald, baby girl needs something up there.


I pretty much love everything about this outfit.



I hope this helps you want to overcome any fear you might have to sew a swimsuit.  I'm even going to make one for me soon.  Now that's scary.  If you want to make your own, you can purchase the pattern here.  She's even having a sale on swim patterns through June 1st, just use the code "swim20" at checkout.

(Just so you know.  We aren't super rich with a fancy boat.  We are just lucky enough to live at a summer camp.)
