I’ve been wanting to try the Sierra pattern as a bathing suit forever, but I waited for summer as an excuse to sew it up. The wraparound style is something I’ve seen a lot, and it’s a fun detail to use on something that will actually get seen by others. The top is the free Sierra Bra pattern from Madalynne modified into a swimsuit. The bottoms are a version of McCall’s M5681 that I have been making for so long they are barely recognizable from the original pattern, but they fit great.
