Bathing Suit

Bloss1996 | Posted in Patterns on

I just joined the Gatherings Discussion group on the advisment of an Admin Assist. at Threads in hope of getting an answer to a question I posted to the magazine.

I am looking to find out if there is a bathing suit pattern similar to what I am seeing in the stores right now that has sort of camisole like top (by that I mean is shaped like) and a skirted bottom.  They are two separate pieces.

I have purchased a suit like the above and would love to make more in this style but have been unsuccessful in finding a pattern like this.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciate it.

    Kwik Sew has two different tankini patterns....nos. 3239 and 2775.  There is also a pattern until 'active wear' for skorts, pattern no 3051.  You may have to purchase two patterns and combine them to get what you want but it just might work!!

    Good luck!

      Thank you for all of your input.  I had checked out the Kwik Sew Patterns online and went to a local fabric store today to purchase a pattern for a camisole that seemed to be made in the same way the bathing suit top is ( I had purchased a skirt that I liked in solid black and have purchased some lycra to make a couple of different patterned tops that would go with the black).

      I just happened to look into the McCall's pattern book and lo and behold there was a suit pattern #M4848 containing both the top and bottom as well as some other bathing suit stuff.  I couldn't believe it.  I had sort of concentrated on the Kwik Sew patterns as eveyone has said they are really good but this has everything I need so I will give it a try.

      I just wanted to say "thank you" for your quick response.
