The Soma Swimsuit

Added Jul 28, 2014

This pattern is the Soma swimsuit by Papercut Patterns: the sexiest and the trendiest swimwear pattern out there at the moment!

When it comes to the sizing, I find that Papercut Pattern adds a rather generous ease. With this in mind, I cut a size XXS for both top and bottom, although according to their size chart my upper body measurements corresponds to a S and the lower part would be a M. As the result, the swimsuit fits well enough.

Also, instead of buying fold over elastic, I made my own ;)

    Fantastic. I love Papercut Patterns – I discovered them earlier this year and found them really great to work with.

    I wanted to make my own swim suit but wasn’t really sure how it would turn out, seeing yours has inspired me to go for it anyway :) This looks really great and looks lovely on you! Hope mine turns out as good :)

    I have just recently purchased this pattern myself and am waiting for the courage to make it I agree that Papercut ease too much As a medium myslef I have to cut an XS to obtain the correct fit which is pissibly why i am a bit afraid to get going with the swimsuit

    Yours looks really nice well done

      Hi Michelle! The good thing with swimwear fabric is that it’s stretchy and you cannot go very wrong with it. I was seriously shocked to cut a XXS but it don’t feel any discomfort wearing it. I say, give it a try :)
