One-piece Sophie Swimsuit


Summer is in full swing and it was definitely time for some new bathers for me. I have seen so many lovely versions of the Closet Case Files Sophie Swimsuit, that it was the obvious choice. Although bikinis are far more practical than one-pieces, I like the er, smoothing effect a one-piece gives to the tummy region. I will probably make the bikini as well though.


I followed all the sizing instructions and came up with a size 8 body and size 5 cup. I love that only a few pages need printing once the size has been chosen and that you also get three size lines on either side of the chosen size. I used those to increase to size 10 at the hips. I am happy to report that the sizing is spot on, particularly for the all-important cup. The instructions suggested lengthening the body if you're taller than 5'6. I should have listened to that advice and will do it next time.


I had chosen a denim-look lycra from my (ridiculously large) lycra stash. Then, at the last minute, I changed my mind and used this coral reef print instead. I was very careful not to place a sea anemone at the lower, centre front but then, despite careful planning, I realised there were fish swimming out of my backside!


The whole time I was making this I marvelled at all the work Heather Lou has put into this pattern. I can't imagine how she worked out all that sizing and the instructions are fantastic. This was a very straightforward garment to make, despite it looking quite complicated.


I also love the design. There is enough coverage to feel comfortable and enough va va voom to still look the part amongst the beach fashionistas. Well, I felt like there was until I saw this photo. I should have given it a good hitch up beforehand. Damn not lengthening the body on my pattern!


I cannot find fault with this pattern. It's a winner and I'm super happy with my coral reef duds.

  1. I bought this pattern a couple of weeks ago and have been procrastinating. You have inspired me to crack on. Great make!

  3. love this version, perhaps best of all! I am halfway through the bikini, but doubt I'll be modelling it. Maybe I should make the one piece - you've convinced me!

  5. Glad to hear the instructions are well thought out. Also, I really appreciate knowing the changes you made, and why.
    (and isn't it a nice feeling, knowing you won't have to shop for a suit?)

  6. Love it! The reef print is amazing. I chickened out on making this for our honeymoon but picked a bikini almost identical. I think a holiday is needed just so I have an excuse to make it. Or maybe it would be a good bra?
