Hey Friends!!!  June is here and it has definitely brought along the excitement of splashing away the warm summer days!  We are all feeling the urge to get outdoors and live out the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote - "Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air,"  and we realized that now would be an awesome time to remind you about all of our amazing swim options with a $6 weekend sale for our swim line!!!  It was so much fun reaching out to many of our customers to be able to include their pictures in this blog, and we have to say thank you to everyone who shared their lovely creations with us to see!!  So please follow along, participate in the giveaway we have listed at the end and grab a few of these swim patterns while they are on sale!! 
Since we have quite a few options, and they are all just too stinking cute, we decided that listing them in alphabetical order is going to be the easiest! 
means we are starting off with our beautiful {Bridgette}!
The Bridgette swimsuit has so many features and can be sewn as a one piece or a tankini.  Both versions can be sewn with the full top ruffle or it can be made as a simple suit with no ruffle.  The Bridgette suit has a wonderful fit that will provide the coverage and comfort needed to play all day without any worries.
Up next is the cutie {Catalina}!
Catalina is a one piece swimsuit that is so chic for the pool or beach! It features the most adorable little flutter sleeves and an optional front keyhole cutout!! Both the keyhole and solid version showcase a darling collar and bow tie.  The legs have the optional ruffles... but who can say no to ruffles?!  We definitely can't!!!
Our third swim option that I can't wait to re-introduce you to is the posh {Pippa}!!


Pippa is bringing glamour to the beach!  This darling retro inspired two piece swimsuit features a sweetheart neckline with halter ties around the neck.  The front is adorned with a bow that allows for tons of fun coordinating swimsuit colors and prints!   

Pippa bottoms are  comfy to wear and have amazing fit and coverage. A playful skirt version is also included! The skirt can be dressed up with pom-pom trims or tulle for a special one a kind look.



Up next?!  Our Ruffle-y {Roxie}!!




Roxie is a feminine two-piece swimsuit that features super stylish high waist bottoms with optional leg ruffles and full bottom coverage. The Roxie top has two options: three tiers of ruffles or one longer ruffle, which means you can't go wrong since we all love ruffles!!! 

Speaking of ruffles, the straps criss-cross and tie at the back and, of course, have the option to add ruffles!!  Really want to go all out with this beauty?  The ruffles can also be embellished with lace, trims or pom-poms for extra customization!! 


And finally, our last swimsuit option to re-introduce you to is our sweet {Saylor}!



The Saylor swimsuit is retro at it's best, featuring a rounded front collar and inset that is perfect for mixing and matching patterns.  Saylor can be made with an optional side flounce or button tabs and have halter ties or fixed criss-cross back straps Who ever said all day water play couldn't be glamorous?!?



Now that you've seen our fabulous 5 swim suits, did you know we also offer a couple of cover up options as well?!?  Our Samantha tunic cover up is an amazing option for pulling over a wet suit while taking a break, and our Leilani mermaid coverup will be your daughters most favorite addition to her closet!



In case you are new to swim fabric and aren't sure if you are ready to take "the plunge," let us reassure you of one thing.... YOU CAN DO IT!!!  Sewing with swim fabric is much easier than most people realize and all of our swim patterns will walk you through each and every step from choosing the right size to finishing techniques. At the beginning of each swim pattern, we have also included a 14 page "Sewing with Swim 101" guide that is chalk full of tips and tricks on fabric selection, sewing information and sewing machine settings like shown here:
