PAULETTE Swimsuit - Kids 3Y/12Y • Pattern
By IKATEE, Paulette Swimsuit is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: Girl's one or two piece swimsuit sewing pattern. Features high waist briefs, back neckline to the shoulder blades and fully lined for comfort. Several options: yokes, ruffles, gathers, buttons or piping. Optional shoulder ruffles.
Sizing: Kids 3-12years old. Sizing guide can be found here.
Specificities regarding underwear and swimwear: Underwear and swimwear must be very close to the body (for swimsuit, panties or boxers in particular because they are small parts for which the height is less important than the build and the age of the child) it is recommended not to take an age above the real age of the child. For example, as long as a child has not reached 7 years, make small pieces of swimwear and underwear in the 6 year size range. If in doubt, it is better to take the size below than the size above.
Fabric Suggestions: Lycra (swimwear fabric) dull or shiny and swimwear lining.
Trims required: Matching thread, rubber elastic 6mm wide (resistant to chlorine and salt) or framilastic (transparent polyurethane elastic of the brand ©Vliesline), wooly nylon thread, 8 buttons optional, piping optional and Microtex needles or needles for jersey or stretchy fabrics.
