Happy pattern release day!
We are coming at you live with the Hello Sailor Swim Bottoms. And you’re going to LOVE them as much as we do!
There will be no disappointment in options with these swimwear bottoms! They are a classic, high-waisted fit (think: full coverage with a slimming effect). And you get to pick and choose how you want to put them together. Solid, paneled, ruched side panels, multiple skirt options, and an easily-customizable fit are all features of the Hello Sailor Swim Bottoms.
On top of that, we are providing you with some extras for this release!
Sewing your own swimwear can be intimidating. We understand. But it doesn’t have to be! That’s why we created this post to help ease some of your worries: Basics of Sewing Swim. On top of that, Judy and Nicole came up with some incredible hacks for the new release: Siren + Hello Sailor Hacks.
A huge kudos goes out to our gorgeous testers! Not only did they all survive several revisions until we got the pattern *just right*, but they were also willing to deliver some fabulous photos. It’s not easy putting yourself on the internet in a bathing suit, but these beauties made it look effortless. Feel free to poke through the photos and get some inspiration from them. And then hop on over to our Facebook group and look for more photos in our Hello Sailor Album.
And then get to sewing! It’s swimsuit season and you’re about to have the first one to ever fit you perfectly! Woot!
