The sun is finally out, the temperatures are warming up, and it's almost time for taking the little ones to the pool or beach! Since kids grow so fast, you know that last summer's swimsuits aren't going to fit this year. So why not have some fun making them new swimwear? We've gathered six of the most adorable swimsuit patterns under the sun for boys, girls and toddlers. Poke around CraftFoxes for more summer sewing projects!

Girls One Piece Ruffle Swimsuit
One-Piece Ruffle Swimsuit

This girl's one-piece pattern is a classic look for any little gal. A full tutorial is on the Zaaberry blog with lots of great photos every step of the way, plus tips for how to convert the pattern to a two-piece.

Toddler one-piece halter swimsuit
Halter-Style Toddler Swimsuit

This suit, which fits toddlers from 18–24 months, is the perfect pattern for learning how to work with stretchy knits and Lycra. There's extra space built in to accommodate an aqua diaper, and the halter neck tie makes it easy to get your little one dressed and ready for their first swimming lesson. Visit Sew Delicious for complete instructions.


Little Boy's Lined Swim Trunks

This is a terrific pattern mash-up — take a pattern for kid's shorts, a pattern for a mesh diaper cover, and a pair of men's swimming trunks. Put them all together and you have a "grown-up" pair of trunks that any little boy will love. Get the pattern and instructions at Dana Made It.

Scirocco girls swimsuit
Scirocco-Inspired Girl's Swimsuit

This pattern starts with the fashionable Scirocco dress pattern, which has a bow at the back and pretty ruffles around the bottom. Convert the dress into a tankini-style top and sew the bottoms from any basic two-piece pattern. Learn how at The Sewing Rabbit.
