Lots of Knots: Summer 2021 swim, sand, sun, and sleep collection
This summer collection consists of beach apparel, swimsuits, and comfy loungewear. I have trouble tying tie-back suits due to shoulder injuries, so I made several other options, including tie-front and tie-shoulder styles. The styles are adjustable but are designed specifically to be easy to adjust and tie for individuals with limited range of motion. The suits are beachy styles, but are secure for swimming and water activities. Many swimwear brands make swim trunks for males but not females, so I also made a few swim trunks designed for females.
I designed this collection in order to practice working with athletic fabrics and practice using my coverstitch machine. I find swimwear fabric to be difficult to sew due to all of the special seam types needed, so I have been working on sewing professional-quality seams and working with various difficult fabrics that are very durable for swimwear.
