Bikini’s and Sunshine

So you guys have already seen my Jalie Gigi Bikini. And if you haven’t, you should check out my post on it! I absolutely love it. So of course, Emma needed a matching suit.  And it was perfect timing with the testing of Little Lizard Kings Laguna swimsuit.  They did a really great job with this pattern and the instructions are really thorough for first timers of sewing swim!

Here are all the options! You can get so many looks from one pattern.

Line+drawings

For Emma’s suit I did the Vintage bottoms with the ruffle and the Lined Bikini, high neck top with the exposed ruffle hem. Everything came together beautifully!

I love the way the vintage bottoms fit her! These photos are with a regular diaper on and the coverage is perfect.  She did test it out at the beach for Memorial weekend with a swim diaper and everything stayed covered and in place!

The top is finished with elastic at the hem to help hold it in place and the back straps can be finished several ways! I chose to cross mine and attach them but you can do a halter tie instead or not cross them! Get creative!

Here is the suit in action at Topsail Beach for Memorial Weekend!
