The Ripley Swimmers are here!!! The final pattern for the Watercolor Beach collection has arrived and it really completes the capsule.
That back is stunning, right? I love the ruffled straps and for such a cool effect it’s way easier than you’d think to make it happen. The Ripley Swimmers are sized 1-10 and I made Bean a size 9. I was going to make a swimsuit for Kitty instead, but when the tween is interested in something I jump at the chance and she really loved the looks of those straps. Especially the criss-cross in front…
How sweet are those ruffles in the front? I’m thrilled she likes the style, cause it looks great and I can see more in our future. The Ripley Swimmers pattern is by Bubby and Me Creations and can be purchased on its own or as a part of the full Watercolor Beach Collection. I love that the collection has two swimsuit patterns that are so different, cause it really gives you a variety of looks for the summer. Just perfect for capsule sewing.
The striped fabric was from Knitfabric.com and is the same I used for Kitty’s swimsuit posted here. I love how fun those watercolor stripes are and the purple solid from Raspberry Creek suits it so well. I really LOVE those ruffled straps – can you tell?? hehe
