Default Anyone make swimsuits???

I have an 8 year old daughter and can not find a cute swimsuit for her this year! I have spent hours looking online. I love the one the member made on here but she is not making anymore

I do sew but have never attempted swimwear ~ is it really hard?

Could someone make me one?
Ribbon is my drug of choice!

Making swimsuits is very challenging because of the stretch in the lycra material, that being said with practice you get use to it. I do make them so if you are interested let me know. I have 2 little girls who do pageants so I make them new ones every 3 months

making a swimsuit is just like any other item that you have not made before. It is not hard, simply untried. Use stretch needles and good quality material. Make sure you dont stretch the material as you cut it. use plenty of pins. If you get frustrated put it down and come back later. The one that was posted appeared to be a tubetop with a bottom ruffle and panty bottoms.(the one I saw anyway)
