This pattern has everything you need for a happy water baby! The raglan “rash guard” shirt has excellent sun coverage all over, with three sleeve lengths and a comfy fit that is easy to get on and off, even when it’s wet! For bottoms you have two options: brief-style or trunks-style! The brief-style swim diaper has three layers for excellent absorbency and is held securely in place at the waist and legs with comfy FOE (fold-over elastic). You can even use it as a training diaper! The trunks-style bottoms have the swim diaper layers as well, with an outer layer of swim trunks for more sun coverage on the legs. Either bottoms style can pair perfectly with the rash guard – or you can use any of the pieces on their own! If you have never sewn swimwear before, that’s no problem at all. The pattern includes lots of tips and photos that will help you make a fabulous swim set your very first time. With Carter’s Swim Set, your baby will be all set for summer!

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.
