More swimwear - a rash top and pants
Cosi swimsuit, but Melbourne's extreme UV levels sometimes require a more sun-smart option. R's previous rash top and pants having been well and truly outgrown, I made a new one using the same patterns as last time: an Ottobre raglan-sleeved top and the Cosi swimsuit's pants.
The floral fabric comes from Joelle's fabric warehouse and is apparently a Sea Folly remnant. It's lovely quality and has quite a slinky feeling. I teamed it with some plain blue swim fabric for the fully lined bottoms, taking a couple of inches off the top of the high-waisted pants. The rash top is exactly as per the pattern with the exception of the neckband, which I widened for better neck coverage.
