Description

I am on a swim suit bender I guess. I made another boy suit today for my one and only grandson. This is Kwik Sew 2512 (which I believe is OOP). The I made the 1T in width, but the 2T in length as he is skinny and tall. The fabric is a poly/cotton blend. I found it on a clearance table for $3.95 a yard and I only bought a half yard. And bonus it is 60 inches wide, so I have a LOT to make more of these.

The pattern calls for lining and I used just a basic knit white swimsuit lining. This is the first time I’ve made a lined swimsuit and it was actually very easy.

Because the trunks were so plain, I used my embroidery machine to put a little “Finding Nemo” image on the front. He loves all kinds of fish, so I think it will be a hit.


Update:  They fit him well!  He wore them to the splash park today on the 4th of July!
