Here we are one week past the halfway point and it’s time to start thinking about bathing suits since we will spend half the day several days a week enjoying our local public pool!
This post is part 1 of 2 parts that ends during the Poolside Blog Tour hosted by Winter Wear Designs
So Sweet Pea asked for a Doc McStuffins inspired suit and I knew the Princess Power Suit would make the cutest suit for her and would meet the additional requirement of a tutu on it. This post will focus on how I made the striped bodice insert for the Princess Power Suit to create the striped shirt effect of a Doc McStuffins suit.
Gather your supplies (for this part I am using the white and purple):
There are a couple of different ways to do this next part. I am going to walk you through how I did it (there may be a better method) and I wish I took more photos so you can really see exactly what I did step by step, but I don’t think its all that confusing. If you have a question feel free to ask. I cut 2 pieces of fabric then cut each into 2 inch strips. Then sewed the 2 inch pieces together alternating the colors when sewing so you have a striped panel. From there you can continue the pattern construction from there.
If you really want to see Sweet Pea’s suit, come back next week for the second half of this swimsuit!
