We were lucky enough to go sailing around the Pacific Islands for a couple of weeks on my parents yacht. It was a dream, deserted islands and clear blue water. So before we left, I made two pairs of bathers for my daughter to wear on our tropical holiday.
Both pairs of bathers were made from the same pattern found in the magazine Ottobre Design (Summer 3/2009 edition). They were simple to make, and I added a bit of difference with a gathered skirt on the floral bathers and a frill to the top of the pink pair. They are both gorgeous on, though I think the top frill does annoy her slightly until it is wet then it sticks down and is more comfortable.
