She can balance it all in the Ellie 2-piece ruffle top swim set! The two piece set features a flared ruffle around the bottom of the separate top. The top has a rounded front neckline with fitted bodice and binding along neck and ruffle edge. Spaghetti ties bind off and tie at back neckline. Simple one-piece fitted back with open halter style. Top front can be lined in 4 way stretch tricot lining. Simple bikini style swim bottoms are reversible when you use a contrast fabric or can be lined with tricot liner for non-reversible. Bound edges with elastic underneath keep pants secure and fitting great. Ruffle top and panty are two separate pieces. Panty is wider in the smaller sizes to accommodate swim diaper and slims up in the larger sizes. Sizes 12M-8 are included in this pattern.
Recommended Fabrics: Please note this pattern is for stretch knit fabrics only. Cotton/spandex blends or tactels with 4 way stretch perform best. We used a 4 way stretch tricot for lining in a poly blend and it generally comes in nude or white. Additional yardage may be required to match stripes, or with print fabrics that have a one-way pattern. Prewash and dry fabrics before cutting.
