Release of the moonbeam swimsuit

Ever since I sewed my first swimsuit I have overcome my fear for sewing swimwear. Nevertheless, I have not sewed one since then. Then I saw a tester call for the Moonbean Swimsuit by Petite Stitchery*, wow, I loved the cut-out version right away! I was one of the lucky testers to be chosen to test the Moonbeam Swimsuit.

I sewed two swimsuits during the test because there were small changes in the pattern. And now I just love sewing swimwear. You get to sew an original swimsuit (I love original one of a kind patterns) and you don’t need much fabric. You do need some specific haberdasheries like swimelastic and swimsuit lining. I sewed the elastic with a regular zigzag stitch. I also have my coverlock, but I prefer my regular sewing machine. What I like about this pattern is that it uses the trunk length to adapt the pattern for different lengths and I really like that way of adapting a pattern for length.

The Moonbeam swimsuit has several options and actually is a quick sew. There is a one piece swimsuit and a cutout swimsuit, which I sewed. Additionally, you can sew a swim dress with pockets (!!) and you can add a flounce. Sizing starts at 2Y and goes up all the way to 17 and also a women’s Moonbeam swimsuit is available. I love the look of the cut out swimsuit that looks like a bikini, but is a swimsuit. I always have to get the hang of swimming elastic in swimsuits, but after that it is not a difficult pattern at all and looks amazing!
