You'll learn...

  • How to assemble a swimsuit using a regular sewing machine or serger
  • Working with swimsuit lycra
  • The best techniques and stitches for swimsuit construction
  • Where to source the best bra-making and swim supplies
  • How to insert elastic for swimsuits that move with you
  • How to make a perfectly supportive foam cup
  • Insert underwire and channeling for the ultimate in breast support
  • Fit your suit to perfection - learn how to grade between sizes, sew a sample test cup, and make cups that were shaped just for you
  • Personalize and hack your swimsuit so you can be your own personal swimwear designer!

Included Patterns:

Your class includes a PDF copy of the Sophie Swimsuit pattern. With curvy seam lines and a 3-piece balconette cup, the Sophie swimsuit is both va-va-voom flattering and reassuringly supportive, a silhouette equally appropriate in the south of France or the neighborhood pool. The pattern comes in sizes 0-20, with 5 cup options per size.

View A is a classic one-piece with a pronounced hourglass shape and skinny elastic straps. View B mixes a bra-style halter-tied top with an elegant high-waisted bikini bottom. With a low cut leg and a full cup, both offer sexily modest coverage. Tap into your inner designer by playing with contrast fabric and colour blocking, and learn how to add optional underwires and foam cups to make the most supportive swimsuit ever!

Reviews from Real Students

I've long wanted to make my own swimsuits and bras but was daunted at the prospect. Underwires, elastic, small seam allowances, stretch fabric - it all seemed too hard to tackle without assistance. Taking this course equipped me with the knowledge and skills to tackle swimsuit and lingerie projects and after completing my first Sophie Swimsuit, I have not looked back. Heather's pep talks and positive attitude inspired me to really step up my sewing game.


Reviews from Real Students

Great confidence builder. I would described myself as an intermediate to advanced level sewist, but I had no prior experience sewing swimwear or with swimwear knits. This course helped give me the confidence to make my own swimsuit, and now I even feel inspired and confident to move into bra making! As a pear-shaped, busty, petite woman I can never find an affordable, well fitting swimsuit, so this course was well worth the investment and will pay for itself.


Reviews from Real Students

This class was so great I ended up making three swim suits, two of the two piece and one full suit. I used the class each time and they turned out fantastic. This course took the fear of sewing swim suit fabric away. Great class and would recommend it to anyone wanting to sew their own swim wear.

What will I need to get started?

Before you get started, we’ll share a complete supply list, along with information about where and how to source everything on said list. At the very least, you’ll need a sewing machine (serger optional), swim fabric & lining, polyester thread, stretch needles and swim elastic. For an underwired suit you'll also need underwires, channelling, bra lining and bra cup foam.

Prêt à commencer mais je n'ai pas reçu les patrons à télécharger et j'ai envoyé un message et je n'ai pas eu de nouvelles de quelqu'un :(

Super cours !

J'ai vraiment apprécié ce cours, la façon dont tout est expliqué et le maillot de bain que j'ai pu faire ! Je le recommande vivement !

Super cours

J'ai suivi trois cours de couture (vêtements de base, veste et maillot de bain) avec Closetcore Pattern. J'ai apprécié tous ces cours et j'ai beaucoup appris. Je vous les recommande vivement !

Un cours incroyable

Ce cours était tellement génial que j'ai fini par faire trois maillots de bain, deux de deux pièces et un complet. J'ai suivi le cours à chaque fois et les résultats ont été fantastiques. Ce cours a fait disparaître la peur de coudre du tissu de maillot de bain. C'est un cours formidable et je le recommande à tous ceux qui veulent coudre leurs propres maillots de bain.

J'ai pris confiance en moi

Je n'aurais jamais trouvé la confiance nécessaire pour m'essayer à la couture d'un maillot de bain sans cette formation. J'ai eu l'impression de suivre un cours particulier, ce qui est formidable lorsqu'on travaille avec de nouveaux matériaux et qu'on apprend de nouvelles techniques.

J'aimerais juste aller nager plus souvent pour pouvoir coudre un tas de maillots de bain.

Maillot de bain Sophie

J'ai longtemps voulu faire mes propres maillots de bain et soutiens-gorge mais j'étais intimidée par la perspective. Les armatures, les élastiques, les petites marges de couture, le tissu extensible - tout cela me semblait trop difficile à aborder sans aide. En suivant ce cours, j'ai acquis les connaissances et les compétences nécessaires pour m'attaquer à des projets de maillots de bain et de lingerie et, après avoir terminé mon premier maillot de bain Sophie, je n'ai pas regardé en arrière. Les discours d'encouragement et l'attitude positive d'Heather m'ont incitée à améliorer mon jeu de couture.
