V-neck one piece swimsuit

4.5/5

If you already downloaded the free guide to draft the basic bodysuit (and if you don’t, you can find it here) you can manipulate it to create an amazing V-neck one piece swimsuit.

Here you find a tip on the best elastic for sewing swimswear.

Step 1

Trace a copy of the basic block.

Step 2

Draw the new style lines: on both back and front draw the new shoulder line, neckline and armhole.
On both necklines draw also a small dart 1cm wide that will be manipulated and helps keeping the deep neckline tighter to the body.
Draw a new line for manipulating the dart at the underbust and cut through it.
Redraw the crotch line to move the seam slightly backwards.

Step 3

Trace the separate pieces and manipulate the darts: on back it will be closed, on front both darts will be moved to the underbust gathering.
