Product Information

This pattern is for a modest, one-piece swim dress with built-in leggings and a zipper in the back, which makes putting the swim dress on and taking it off easy and convenient. This pattern gives step-by-step instructions on how to sew the zipper, and also has a simple trick that makes it easy even for beginners with only modest skills. 

By making the swim dress all one piece, there is no danger of the top floating up from the leggings in water and exposing a bare midriff, no matter how wildly kids play in the pool, jump in, etc. This also eliminates the need for an elastic waist band on the leggings part. Most elastic typically gives out after moderate use due to the chlorine in pools. By not using elastic in the waist band, the lifespan of your swim dress will be greatly prolonged. 



Materials needed:


1 (size 18m, 2T) to 1.5 yards (size 3T and up) medium weight Lycra/spandex, 60" wide

1 zipper, 12" or longer

thread in matching color


This swim dress can be made on a regular sewing machine.

Does not require the use of a serger.


The pattern includes detailed step-by-step directions.

Basic sewing skills are required.


If you would like to mix and match fabrics, please count on needing approx. 1/2 yard of fabric for the bodice, 1/2 yard of fabric for the skirt, and a 1/2 yard of fabric for the leggings. For instance, if you would like to have black lycra leggings under a print bodice and skirt, you would need to purchase 1/2 yard of black lycra, and 1 yard of the print.
When selecting fabrics, please look for the following to obtain best results:
- The fabric should have 4-way stretch.
- The fabric should not be too thin, i.e. the edges should not roll when the fabric is stretched, and the fabric should not feel 'slippery' when two or more layers are rubbed together.
- The fabric should not be too thick and heavy. Medium-weight Lycra is both easy to work with, and will offer the best performance in water.
All the fabrics offered on our website are hand-picked very carefully and meet these requirements.

Super Cute!

I made this swimsuit in a couple days as I have a newborn baby girl. I am very pleased with the instructions and the result. I am a visual learner so I depended heavily on the pictures (and wished there had been more), but once I got over my rustiness from not having sewn in over a year, it all came back quickly. My daughter showed it to a couple of my friends who came to visit and they thought it had been purchased at a shop. High praise, indeed. (10 Jun 2015, 02:31)
