Shin swim trunks for comixminx's kid

April 04, 2022
Lycra swim shorts

These Swim shorts were a labor of love -- comixminx made several test pairs in stretchy fabric to refine the fit. She shared lots of tips on Discord along the way. A couple key ones:

  • A microtex needle worked very well on these fabrics
  • As drafted for the recipient's measurements, the crotch was too angular; smoothing out that seam made it more comfortable
  • A fake coverlock stitch looked great from the outside, but may have reduced comfort -- make sure you think about the wearer's comfort for each seam of this pattern

We think the final product looks great!
