Sew beautiful swimwear you can feel confident in with the Zahra Swimsuit & Bikini PDF Pattern!

The Zahra Swimsuit & Bikini sewing pattern includes different variations, so you can make swimwear that’s perfect for you. Make Zahra as a one or two-piece, 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. Our detailed instructions will show you how to add strap adjusters to your Zahra to achieve the best fit, and will also guide you through sewing a simplified version with shoulder seams.

If you choose the PDF + A0 printed pattern options above, you will receive a print of all versions of the Zahra pattern. If you’d like to order a print of just the Zahra Swimsuit or just the Zahra Bikini on A0 paper, head over to our Copyshop page for more options.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
