My first swimsuit, my first time sewing with lycra, and my first time downloading a clothing pattern online. All a success! Wonderful pattern, thank you. Instructions were very easy to follow and it fit wonderfully. Very happy I tried something new :)

This was the first swimsuit I have ever sewed, and it was a great intro to using swimsuit fabric and lining. There is no way that you can find a fully-lined swimsuit for little girls that looks this cute unless you spend bundles of dough. This one is adorable, though, and a great pattern to learn on!

I love the look of this suit and I like that it covers the kid (never crazy about bikinis on little ones). With the ruching, I think it looks extra cute. For the pattern and directions, sometimes just reading them is confusing, but following step by step, it always works even when I'm sure I did something wrong. LOL LOVE PAB patterns!

This is a super quick sew! The shorts and tankini top provide excellent coverage and some adjustability as a halter top. Absolutely wonderful fit on my little girl and stays in place with all her running, jumping, and water play. Construction is explained wonderfully in the instructions and I ran into zero problems and this was only the second swimsuit I had attempted! Minimal fabric is used and I was able to get this and a Nantucket swimsuit out of only a 1/2yrd of fabric in a size 2T. Great pattern!!

This was my first attempt at a swim suit and my finished product was an adorable suit that stayed put exactly where you want it to! My daughter played for 2+ hours at the beach in it and the top never rode up on her belly, and the shorts were just long enough to offer sand control in the most important areas. The pattern is clearly written like all PAB patterns, and so easy to follow! This is a great option, even for those who may feel intimidated with the material used.
