Just a quick post with some fun news… It’s finally June, and we’re sure you’re starting to plan your summer sewing schedule. If a beautiful me-made swimsuit is at the top of that list, we’re excited to offer you 20% off our Sophie Swimsuit workshop until June 19th. This online course walks you through the construction of our gorgeous Sophie Swimsuit Pattern from start to finish in eleven, in-depth video lessons, and includes the PDF pattern with enrollment.
This pattern was one of our biggest labours of love. With five cup sizes for each size in our range, in addition to two major variations (a high waisted bikini and a glamorous bustier style one piece), the Sophie Swimsuit is one of our most customizable and adaptable patterns ever. Our online workshop is designed to make this a totally achievable project for beginners and advanced sewists alike, or for those of you who are new to sewing lycra knits.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
This workshop was TERRIFIC right from the start to achieve a nicely fitting swimsuit top. Heather was practically holding my hand through the entire process. The explanations were easy to understand and the videography was excellent as well. A beginner could easily be successful using this workshop to make a swimsuit. When I had a question, Heather took the time to respond and the answer was beyond my expectation…clear, concise and detailed! I love that I can log in and watch again and again. Heather has a fresh approach to sewing instruction that IMO matches all skill levels and is superb for the newest among sewists. – Genevieve Arthur
I made my first swimsuit using this course. I was pretty nervous about swimwear, especially putting in an underwire, but the course made it so easy to understand. Heather Lou was so personable, and I loved that it felt like she was sewing right along with me! I’m super proud of my finished swimsuit, and I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on it! – Nicole Morgan
