Amelia...Chanting " I'm ready for the beach!" getting louder and louder...Can't you hear her?
Here's my swimsuit post for the tour...don't forget to go enter the rafflecopter giveaway at the end!
Well, we did make it too the beach, but not early enough because that summer sun was so bright and so hot!
I started off by looking for the perfect pattern for Amelia and something that would also be fun for me to make and came across Nantucket by Peek-a-Boo patterns (affiliate link).
I got my fabric (Amelia's selection actually) from Club Tissus where they have quite the selection of swimwear fabrics. She wanted roses, and roses she got!
I love the criss-cross back and the neckline, how high it goes.
The pattern ranges from size 3month to 12 years (I'll be sewing many more of these in the next few years). All charts are in metric and imperial measurements, and the pattern pieces are nested to allow for size blending. All seam allowances are included. It was quite easy and qick to put together too.
How can I take her to the beach and not let her have some play time. This water toy in the shape of an elephant was just too cute to pass up! Much like a water pistol, but with the cuteness of an animal.
