Swimwear Style

Express your personal style poolside with these three looks, by Haley Glenn.

Posted in: Style & Wardrobe • May 31, 2019

Over the years, I have noticed that sewing helps us to unlock new layers of our personal style. Having more control over the silhouettes, colors, textures, and prints we dress ourselves in, brings us in touch with our style and the way we present ourselves to the world. To me, personal style is the way we introduce ourselves without words; it is a visual language that only becomes richer when you have control over your medium.

With Seamwork Style, we want to inspire you to see the creative potential behind each pattern, because your me-mades should work for your life and your style.

This month, we wanted to dive into the world of swimwear. Wearing a swimsuit doesn’t have to fill you with dread—play with your accessories and layer in some tried-and-true me-made garments to let your style and sewing skills shine.


Layer a pair of shorts like Harrington with your swimsuit. This cute and sporty look is perfect for those times when you want to keep it practical but cute at the beach or lake.

Lounging poolside with a cold beverage more your speed? Try a Loretta top lengthened into a glamorous dress length. Bonus points for a sheer fabric that shows off the fabulous me-made suit beneath!

This look is all about keeping it simple with solid, bold fabrics. Almada isn’t just for lounging at home—it also makes a fantastic swim cover-up.
