Yes, it's a swim suit pattern, a tankini to be exact.
If you try one, be prepared, some are more boy-short-ish than others. Meaning, one pattern I have is just squares sewn together to make the brief. Another I have has "bootie" curves, and is less square-ish in the back. I liked that one better, as most (but not all!!) of the 12-13 y/o girls I made them for are still in that "shaped like a skinny twig" phase and have no bootie! The square-ish briefs actually bagged a little in the back, looked worse than a pair of high-waisted 80's jeans on those poor girls!!
So, it's a matter of age (read: hip development) as well as preference of coverage.
Best of luck!
PS the best patterns I found, that also last the longest, are Quik-sew, I think you can find them at Hancock Fabrics, but I just bought them online.
Thanks. It looks like I'll be going to Hancock Fabrics this weekend.
