Make your swimming costume with us! 

Use a regular sewing machine and make a practical and stylish swimming costume or bikini in sports Lycra.  You can choose between sewing the Friday Patterns Vernazza two piece bikini or the new Megan Nielson Cottesloe swimsuit or bikini variations.

Sizes available- XS-XXL (8-30, up to b/w/h - 56/48/58, Cottelsloe only.) If you require sizes L-XXL, please let us know when you check out so we can prepare your pattern.

What you will learn:

  • How to cut out stretchy fabric
  • How to use a sewing machine to construct a stretch fabric garment
  • How to stretch on elastic for a neat finish
  • Use swimsuit lining 

You will need to bring or buy from our shop:

 What is included:

  • Elastic
  • Swimsuit lining in black or nude
  • Thread and all equipment required
  • Your pattern and instructions
  • Refreshements

All equipment is provided for this workshop

As we will be making a garment that is close fitting and you will want to try this on to check the fit regularly, we recommended that you wear suitable clothing. Leggings and a vest are ideal so the bikini/ swimsuit can be quickly tried on over these throughout the making process. 

You can buy fabric from our shop or bring your own. Please contact us for advice. As the fabric is synthetic pre-washing is not required.

Take a look at our range of sports lycra fabrics, all perfect for your swimming costume. 

There is a maximum of 5 guests in this workshop.
