This PDF sewing pattern comes in sizes XXS - 6XL. This pattern was drafted for our Curvy Fit Size Chart that is drafted for the height of 5’5”/165.10 cm. The instructions include steps for adjusting the pattern for height differences if needed. 

Fabric Recommendation:

This pattern is designed for swim or performance knit fabrics with a minimum of 50% 4-way stretch.

The swimsuit is partly lined, so are the briefs. Mesh or another fabric with enough stretch for the lining looks the best. It is possible to use the main fabric for lining.

A plastic zipper works the best for swim wear, but you can use another zipper. Just keep in mind that metal zippers will get rusty over time, especially in salt water. 

Zipper Length: 14" / 17". The zipper should end 1" below waistline (14"), but you can use a 17" zipper as a personal preference.

Maureen Krupski
Great Swim Pattern, (even makes me look slightly thinner!)

I have made both the one piece, and the two-piece rash guard and bottom. Very easy to follow the great instructions. I find watching the video instructions for all the Ellie and Mac patterns I have made very helpful.

Love this pattern

My first ever "swimwear" make.. It was very easy to follow along with the help of the video tutorial.. I've made 3 zip swimsuits 1 rash guard and 4 hacked crops.. Just in time for summer .. I love this pattern

Great swim pattern

I sewed the 2 piece swim set; sleeveless top and lined bottoms.
I measure and made small. Decided to line the front & if necessary later on make a separate bra/bikinni top instead of including a shelf bra.
Sewed reversible pants without the mesh following the EM video from Diana. A good video but not that easy to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARVZQ-BSvog
My machine had difficulty with joining the seams where there was double elastic + fabric. This took 4 attempts to get the side seams acceptable. I also had to unpick the waist elastic also as I didn’t feed it through ‘the packet’ before trying to attach. Then it was easy.
Tested in the pool: Pants were a good fit and comfy but would benefit from topstitching. Top fitted well though flapped up at the front when wet. Perhaps needs to be narrower/smaller or have elastic round the bottom? I tucked it in the pants & it was fine.

Overall very pleased with my first attempt at swimwear. Might consider making the one piece next.
