Jackie's Two-Piece Toddler Bathing Suits

If you haven't already gotten your copy of our "Blue Issue" (May/June #130) you are in for a real treat! We are so proud of this one, and have been thrilled with the positive responses. One of the most popular articles is our "Toddler Two-Piece" from designer Jackie Young, which is provided as a free pattern on the pullout centerfold (pictured above). In sizes 6 months through 4T, I've read online that many SB readers are already planning to make sweet seersucker swimsuits of their own for the little ones in their lives. Please send us your pictures if you do make one! You can email them to blog@sewbeautifulmag.com.

Pictured above are Jackie's daughters in suits she made for them last summer. We think they look just right in pink and green, accented by girly monograms.

Jackie also sent us a picture of these adorable seersucker swim trunks she made for one of her customers at Three Sisters Heirlooms. Although this pair sports a cute picture-smocked insert on the leg, Jackie says she has also made some with an embroidered monogram to match her two-piece girls' suit. So sweet!
