Princess Tankini Swimsuit Pattern
The Princess Tankini is the most practical swimsuit – ever! These swimsuits have the wearing ease and practicality of a two-piece suit (meaning you can remove the bottoms easily even when wet), combined with the full body coverage of a skirted one-piece. The Princess Tankini Pattern Swimsuit Pattern conveniently covers the midriff area, tummy, and upper thigh area better than a one-piece.
Also included with the Princess Tankini Swimsuit Pattern are 5 different bottom options – a regular or bikini bottoms, boy shorts, thigh length shorts, or Capri leggings. The built-in bra uses pre-formed, chlorine-resistant foam swim cups, such as our MU or MLQ series of Swimwear Cups. We have also made the tankini with our MB Balconette cups. Customers sometimes omit the g-hook/swimwear clicker from the back and wear as a summer top.
This Pin-up Girls Princess Tankini Pattern Swimsuit Pattern includes eleven sizes from bust 32 to bust 52.
