How to Sew an L&K Swimsuit Halter Neck Straps

Looking for a perfect swimsuit?  L&K Swimsuit is it!

L&K swimsuit is based on the Lilah & Kamaria design. The design comes with two top options. The L top features low front neckline and a racer back. The K top features  inverted pleats at the front, slight v-neck, halter neck straps and a low elasticized back. There are two bottom options to make. The high-waisted style swim bottoms (or Retro style is perfect for those who wants more coverage) and there is the basic bikini version which is perfect for hot weather. The neck strap for the K  is intended to be tied so that where the bodice and necktie meet hits your child’s collarbone.

This is an ultimate swimsuit for your little ones.

Shall we begin with the tutorial?

This is the Halter neck version of our newest pattern, Sansahash L&K. Gogeous Print from Naaiplezier.nl! Love the pleats on the front!

 

Step 1: 

First step is to attach the safety pin at one end of the bodice where the strap will join.

Step 2:

Using the safety pin, slide the pin through the strap’s gap RS together. Make sure the raw edges are aligned and nothing is twisted.

Step 3:

Secure the strap using a wide zigzag stitch. Do not forget to reduce the seam allowance to avoid bulk! Repeat step 1 to 3 with the other side.

This is how it should look on the front. Do not forget to close the gap after you are done.
