Seville girl's asymmetric swim top sewing pattern - sewing tutorial

Before sewing

You can sew this top as swimwear. In this case use biflex fabric. Choose light- weight cotton lycra jersey to sew summer top.

Use serger (overlock) to sew this top. In case you don’t have serger, replace it with a stretch stitch or zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. Use rubber elastics in sewing swimwear top.

While sewing we recommend to baste the details together before stitching to avoid displacement of the upper fabric.
