When our girl saw the tester call of the Sorbetto swimsuit (by Designs by Call Ajaire*) she immediately said she liked it and would like one. She adores the sleeves of the top. She was ok with any of the options, as long as it had the flowy sleeves. I like separate swimsuits (with separate swim bottoms) because that makes it so much easier to have toilet break during swimming.
The Sorbetto Swimsuit is part of the Project Smooth Sorbet collection from Project Run and Play. The collection includes 11 patterns and the Sorbetto Swimsuit is just one of them. The Sorbetto Swimsuit includes a one piece leotard and a separate top and bottom. For the top you can choose to add or leave off the sleeves. For the bottom you can choose for a colour blocked bottom, like I did, or just a one piece bottom. Additionally, you can choose for a banded elastic waistband or just turn and sew the elastic on your fabric (which I choose).
The flowy sleeves and the beautiful v-neck on both the front and back makes that we love this swimsuit.
All patterns in the collection will be on sale during release week for 20% off. The whole collection is discounted over 30%. No discount codes are needed.
