Every summer for the past two years I have made myself a new handmade swimsuit. I love the process of making swimwear and I have so much fun wearing my me-mades to the beach! This indie sewing pattern roundup is all about swimwear! Let me know if I missed your favourite! I will be sure to add it to the list 🙂
