In this 2 day class you'll make a chic & simple swimsuit. A perfect class just before the weather warms and pools open. We will be making either the Vernazza Two Piece by Friday Pattern Company or the new Seabright one piece. The Vernazza features tank straps, an adjustable tie front, and a soft waistband. The bottoms hit at about your belly button and can easily be adjusted for a higher or lower rise. This is a simple swimsuit with a lot of style. It is fun to sew and is perfect for the very confident beginner or intermediate sewist. The Seabright has gathers at the shoulders, a deep V, optional cups, optional long sleeves.
NOTE: To save time and space for your fellow sewists, please cut out your pattern and fabric pieces before class. We will mail your pattern approximately two weeks before class to give you time to cut out. If you want to collect your pattern in person, just let us know in the notes at check out. We encourage you to contact the shop before class if you need help cutting out your fabric.
