Megan Nielsen Sewing Pattern - Cottesloe Swimsuit and Bikini Set


Make your own practical but pretty swimwear with Megan Nielsen.

The Cottesloe pattern features a classic one-piece swimsuit and mix-and-match bikini sets. Choose from a low scoop back or high scoop back on the swimsuit and bikini tops, plus an optional tie detail. The bikini bottoms come in either a low rise or high waisted style, and the top can feature a standard shelf style fit, with the option for a wide waistband for a more athletic look.

Fabric suggestions: Swim fabric (polyamid or lycra) with at least 50% stretch and good recovery.

Additional supplies: 6mm/13mm/25mm clear/swim elastic (depending on style chosen), swimsuit lining (optional), power mesh (optional), foam cups (optional).
