Flirty patriotic swim dress and shorts. Kwik Sew 2690 is reminiscent of the 1940’s Pin-Up girls. The swim dress is super comfortable. I made a size medium with a full bust alteration to a C cup and lined the suit with powernet. Since the dress was a little shorter than I was comfortable with, I made powernet lined matching shorts.
Swim fabric with 75% stretch, 3/8" cotton covered swim elastic, knit or cotton covered waistband elastic in your favorite width, 3/4" plush bra band elastic, and thread. Remember the needles for medium weight knits!
