I made this swimsuit for myself. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. The fabric is my own design and was printed by Passion Prints. Passion Prints is a new sponsor at my blog. Passion Prints offers consumers to print their own design on high quality fabric.
For this swimsuit I used the fabric Malaga Mat. Malaga is an elastic, light weight fabric, resistant to pilling and UV rays.
* Swimsuit fabric (swimsuit)
* Swimsuit lining fabric in black or white (lining)

When working with knits, it is important not to stretch or pull the fabric while sewing. Also use a stretch needle and a stretch stitch. In this pattern (nearly) all seams are sewed with a twin needle.
