Book chapter + STUDIO

A swimsuit is a close-fitting article of clothing used for swimming and sunbathing. It can be one piece or a two-piece bra and panty ensemble. A swimsuit needs to be practical and wearable, and it must stay secure at all times to be swim-ready. To accomplish this, you need to purchase the correct supplies.

Book chapter

This is an example to follow in creating other designs. Suggestion: Style lines are drawn directly on a traced copy of the bodysuit pattern or put the test fit garment on the form. Draw style lines with washable pen or pin-mark. Remove and transfer style lines to the pattern (do not cut the garment apart).

Book chapter

This chapter covers development of patterns for bodysuits, leotards, and one-piece and two-piece swimsuits. The slopers may be created from scratch or developed from the catsuit sloper. The leotard sloper may be used to create leotards, bodysuits, or any top with panty attached, as well as one-piece swimsuits. Panties and swimsuit bottoms are also covered in this chapter, but will need a separate sloper. Since there is nothing anchoring the top of the swimsuit, it behaves like a one-way stretch.
