Bahari swimsuit release

I always find it hard to find great swimsuits for our girls. Either the fit is not so good or the design is not what we both like. I have sewed several swimsuits mostly for our eldest and I always love the result. Now our middle daughter wanted a bikini as well so I sewed up the Bahari swimsuit from Bella Sunshine Designs* for her, which is released today.

It is a great pattern for when you haven’t sewn many swimsuits before and you can add a flounce or skirt if you like. Since I made a skirted bottom last year for our middle one I sewed one without a skirt. I did add a flounce, which everybody here at home thought would end up as a skirt. Blending for different width and lengths for the sizes might be tricky, but Bella Sunshine Designs has a very clear video explaining how to blend for the Bahari. Be sure to check that out.


Making photos of a swimsuit without a swim pool or nice water close-by was a new challenge. I tried to create a watery feel with the bath towel, chairs and sunglasses. Our eldest loved the setup. Our middle one loved making photos in the set up and showing off her new swuimsuit. A one piece swimsuit is also an option to which you can add a skirt or flounce as well. The fit is great and covers well.

The Bahari swimsuit Girl’s is now on sale for only $9. Also the Ladies and babies Bahari swimsuit are released and are on sale. The Bahari Swimsuit for babies includes sizes preemie to 24M and includes the coverage over a swim diaper.
