I know the summer is coming to the end, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t sew up a new swimsuit! I still do a lot of swimming in the winter months (mainly in hot tubs haha), so I figured why not make a watermelon retro style suit.

This suit was for a sew along I am doing for Spoonflower! They have introduced a sport lycra that is perfect for sewing swimwear in and many other stretch garments. I got to pick a print for my Alison swimsuit pattern and I chose this adorable watermelon print. This suit came out just as lovely as I envisioned it. I have made the Alison before, but now I’m more in love with it than ever!

Check out the first sew along post on Spoonflower here to see my first steps in sewing this suit together.

I also love wearing this suit with my double gauze kimono!.
