Made this for my son to match his sister's Arielle tankini for her birthday party. I embroidered George Pig on it and he loved it, even though he's only 18 months old. Definitely easy enough for a beginner to knit/spandex.
If your kids are ready for less sunscreen and more play, this comfy rash guard tee is perfect for them! Our fitted raglan style allows full coverage at the neck and the arms, with two sleeve options and easy construction. We recommend that you use swimwear fabric with at least 50% stretch, which can be found at most fabric stores. If you have never sewn with swimwear fabric, no problem! We have helpful tips included right in the pattern. Alex’s rash guard is perfect for the beach, pool, outdoor play, and even in cooler months as a fitted activewear tee! The sky is the limit now let’s see what YOU can do with it!
Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape. You will only receive pattern pieces for curved portions of the garment, and you will follow the cutting chart for the remaining pieces.
