Sew beautiful swimwear you can feel confident in with our detailed masterclass. It may seem like a daunting project, but with the guidance of our expert teachers, you’ll be able to create something you feel great in, ready to enjoy a dip in the pool!

Sew Over It - Swimwear Class

Our Zahra Swimsuit & Bikini sewing pattern is exclusively available as part of this class and includes different variations, so you can make swimwear that’s perfect for you. Make Zahra as a one or two-piece to suit your style. Both versions come with the option to add foam cups for coverage and elastic under the bust for extra support. If you’re making the Bikini, you can also pick between a narrow or wide band to finish the top and bottoms.

Sew Over It - Swimwear Class

In the masterclass we’ll show you how to add strap adjusters to achieve the best fit, but you can decide to omit them by following a simplified version included in the written instructions.
