Ruby from ZaaBerry shares a free pattern and tutorial on her blog for making a little girl’s swimsuit. If you’re wanting to try your hand at making swimwear, a little girl’s suit is a good place to start. Their little bodies don’t need all the extra support and shaping that a woman’s body needs, so you can focus on learning how to handle the fabric and finish the edges. Her free pattern is a size 5T. If you need a different size, try tracing around a suit that fits but using her pattern as a shaping guide. Get the tutorial.
