We dreamed up this full-coverage swimsuit to be simple to make and comfortable.  This one pattern will take you through all the stages of parenthood - it has regular, maternity, and breastfeeding pattern pieces included.  Full coverage all over. No wardrobe malfunctions, no shaving!  Add the included built in shelf bra for more support.  The tutorial explains how to add pads, if you desire.  Optional flutter sleeves protect your shoulders from sunburn. 
Works with our Boxer Add-on for a leotard, or more crotch coverage. Or use the included leg bands.  For a vintage style pantsuit, add quarter circle skirts to the leg openings.

The nursing access snaps down from the shoulder and has a full sling underneath. This allows you to breastfeed discretely.

Pattern options: Includes Maternity, Regular, and Busty fronts. All three can be nursing or not. The Busty front has a FBA done for you! All of these options come in regular and tall.  Optional shelf bra.  Leg bands can be added for ultimate coverage - it makes a great practice leotard! Optional flutter sleeves. 

Difficulty:  We designed this pattern to be beginner friendly.  It still gets 3 out of 4 difficulty, because there are some advanced techniques used (inseam elastic, topstitching, darting, ruching).  

Fabric:  Designed for swim knits with at least 50% 4-way stretch.  We recommend using swim fabric for both the outer and lining. 

Yardage:  Up to 3 yards total.  See yardage chart in the pictures.

Special supplies needed:  Narrow swim elastic.  Four sets of snaps, if doing the nursing option.  Wide waistband elastic for underbust support.

Maternity friendly:  Yes, maternity version included.

Nursing friendly:  Yes, nursing version included.

Size range:  Fits from a 32" to 70" hip (81 - 178 cm).  If you're out of this range, send us a note and we'll add it in!  

Fit:  Snug and supportive fit. 

Pockets:  No.

Time to complete:  It comes together very quickly!  Most sewists will be able to sew this in under an hour.

About our Patterns


We aim for inclusive patterns that fit all bodies. If you don't see your size on this pattern, send us a message and we'll add it in!

Our size charts offer both metric and imperial measurements.

Seam Allowance

All of our patterns have a standard, 3/8" or 1 cm seam allowance.

Print Internationally

Our tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!

Trimless Tiles

We designed our tiles to save paper and be easy to assemble. Place the guidelines on top of each other and tape or glue. The letter layer has solid guidelines with a star in each corner. The A4 layer has dashed guidelines with a circle in each corner. Each page has a number, and the tutorial has an assembly chart.

All of our files offer layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.

Copyshop Printing

A0 pages are 33.25" by 60" and are printable at most copyshops. We design ours to be printable in black and white. There are no passwords on any of our files. Our A0 files have layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.

Projector Optimized Files

Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.

All of our patterns are drafted digitally and tested with a projector in our paper-free studio.

Video + Picture Tutorial

We use pictures in our tutorials, not line drawings. We add in videos of steps that testers have a hard time understanding.


Our tutorial has a table of contents, along with bookmarks. This allows you to quickly get to the page you need.


When a pattern is updated, you will get an email notification. We allow our testers access to our entire pattern catalog, which means we get continual feedback on our patterns.

Fabulous coverage and great feeding access

The feeding coverage on this swimsuit is amazing, I don’t feel as exposed feeding poolside or at swimming lessons. I love that they offer lots of coverage, which makes me feel more comfortable and confident wearing them. The projector file is great with nice thick lines and I found the tutorial easy to follow. Skill wise, this was my first time sewing with swim fabric, and while not completely perfect, I’ve made a very wearable pair of swimmers and I love wearing them to swimming lessons each week. I’m sure the next pair I make will be even better!
