The cosi swimsuit : my testers and a giveaway winner

I was very fortunate to have some fantastic testers for my cosi swimsuit pattern. Not only did they wait and wait for the pattern (after I announced an early tester call ...way too early!), they also sewed up beautiful suits and took the time to give me lots of essential feedback.

One of the most exciting things I have found with making my pattern is seeing the first few versions of the garment being sewn up by testers.  This pattern ranges from 6 months to ten years so it was also great seeing the suits on babies and older girls  (as I had only sewn my own for my 4 and 5 year old girls).

So, here are some sweet little cosis!! The lovely sewers of these suits are listed below the childrens' photos.

Oh they are so cute! But can you do a pattern for boys? I have two (3 & 9) and they love being sewn for...

These are all so awesome! I'm so glad you posted individual photos, too. I was trying to get a closer look at the collage but these are much easier to see. Such an awesome pattern!

Thanks so much for having me as a tester, Suz! It was such a great learning experience getting to make a swimsuit, and I love this pattern. Just need to carve out some time to make at least one more for my other daughter!
