Intermediate Sewing Swim Lesson: Using 1 pattern to create a capsule

About two years ago I took the plunge and sew my first swim! And I haven't looked back since. I was hooked. Swim is one my absolute favorite things to sew. My husband says "Our daughter has more swimsuits than Target!"

Once you've gotten comfortable with the basics of swim, you'll no doubt be ready sew multiple suits at once! 

And what better way to do than a mini swim capsule?!!?

Project Run and Play's Viridian swim pattern was perfect for my vision of a mini swim capsule because it offers so many looks in one. My vision was to have multiple pieces that could be mixed and matched to create different suits.

First, I had to pick my swim fabrics. I selected these fun neon prints from stash, both from Raspberry Creek Fabrics and found coordinating solids to match.

Once I picked my fabrics, I decided to make 2 tops, 2 bottoms and then I couldn't pass up the one piece to complete the capsule. This would give my little 5 different from our mini capsule! 

We love all these different looks so's hard to pick our favorite. 

I embraced the colors blocking the Viridian offers to really use those coordinating colors and make the mix and matching easier. 

With the one piece I really wanted to tie the capsule together so I decided to use both prints. I love how it turned out, it might be my favorite piece from the mini capsule.

Thanks so much reading along!
