I found this cute fabric at my local shop and didn’t really know what kind of fabric it was. To me it felt like male swim shorts, so I decided that’s what I was going to do with it. So, I had to buy some mesh like fabric as well.
I’ve never made swim wear before, and didn’t really know what I was doing. I thought that if I could make shorts, and I could make a diaper cover, then I could make swim shorts. So, I made the outer layer into basic shorts (no pockets, but I should have). Then I took the grey mesh and made a diaper cover pattern out of it. I fit the underwear lining into the shorts and made a casing for the waist, to hold the two together. Ta-da, swim shorts. Super easy and so far have worked great. Maybe soon I can do a tutorial or something for them. Let me know if you would like to see a tutorial on how to make boys swim trunks.
