The New Vixen Bralette and Cheeky Bottoms in Swim: Summer Bikini Sewing

The Vixen Bralette and Cheeky Bottoms have released from Patterns for Pirates, and I had to jump on board the Pirate Ship to try them out! Because sunshine is right around the corner for Michigan, swim is on my mind! And I love a pattern that is versatile for both bra/underwear and swimsuit!

Pattern Options:
The pattern comes with a variety of options (different rises, different band lengths, reversible bottom option, crossover/straight-scoop back for the bralette, cheeky or thong bottoms). I sewed size XS midrise bottoms with tall bands (top and bottom) and a straight/scoop back for the bralette.

Fabric:
I used swim fabric that I had been saving from Boho Fabrics, and it was perfect to work with. I fully lined the bottoms for ease; and I like a little extra coverage down there for swim anyway. Rather than lining, I used the swim print on both the inside and out (bottoms can be reversible).

Overall verdict:
I love this set! Cheeky is new to me, and I’m not used to the “loose” feeling on my booty since there’s nothing to really cling to. So I might make another bottom with more coverage, but the overall style is so beautiful and makes me feel comfortable to run around, crash in the waves, and enjoy the sunshine with my favorites.

xo! Jennifer
