Introducing the Reese Swimsuit!

Fabric, fitting, and styling tips to help you sew this one-piece swimsuit.

Posted in: Patterns • June 1, 2024

Introducing the Reese Swimsuit, a sleek and timeless one-piece designed for elegance and comfort. This swimsuit features a wide scoop neck at the front and a deep scoop neck at the back, creating a stunning silhouette. With a moderate leg cut, it offers the perfect balance of coverage and style. The suit includes a shelf bra with optional cups for light support and customizable shaping.

Perfect for both swimming and lounging, the Reese swimsuit is your go-to choice for chic swimwear.

Tip: You can easily convert Reese to a bodysuit by sewing it up in your favorite regular knit fabric and adding optional crotch snaps.

















Fabric and Fit

Fabric recommendations: Look for nylon Lycra swimwear fabrics with 4-way stretch and 60% - 80% stretch. Fabrics with 2-way stretch will not work for this pattern.

For the lining, look for swimwear lining fabric with 4-way stretch and 60% - 80% stretch. Lining fabrics with 2-way stretch will also not work for this pattern.

Sew the Almada robe in double gauze for a comfy cover-up.


The Kari romper makes a great cover-up that’s easy to slip into

You can’t go wrong with the Quince day robe at the beach or poolside.
