The Minnow Swimsuit can be sewn as either a one or two piece suit. Both options can be made as a one shoulder suit with a fun statement strap in the back, or with the statement strap as well as an optional skinny strap over the 2nd shoulder. The front of the suit can be made in one solid fabric, or pieced together with an elegant curved design. The two piece suit features a good coverage bikini bottom (with either a solid or pieced back) as well as either a cropped top or a cropped top with added flounce for more coverage.

Main Fabrics: Swim fabrics with minimum 50% 4-way stretch. Athletic knits can be used, but may wear out sooner from sun and chlorine exposure. Swim fabrics with high recovery and lower stretch percentage will result in a suit that feels tighter.
Lining: Swim lining fabric with similar vertical and horizontal stretch as the main fabric. Some swim linings do not have as much vertical stretch which will affect the vertical fit of 1 pc versions of this pattern. These linings can be used, but adjustments to length should be considered for enough vertical ease. Main fabric can be used in place of lining, but may result in a slightly tighter suit.
- 1/4” swim elastic (One Piece suit only)
