Recently, I was putting together a roundup of things you can make with towels, and I stumbled upon many cute swimsuit patterns for women from vintage to more modern cuts and everything in between. I had no idea people even made their own swimsuits and when I saw this, I knew I had to put together a pattern roundup for women’s swimsuits to share them with you. Making your own swimsuit ensures a proper fit and is perfect for anyone out there that has a hard time finding just the right suit! Here are 10 free swimsuit patterns for women.
