Sourcing Swim Fabric and Notions — Ipswich Swimsuit

Carrie here kicking off a series of posts on the Ipswich Swimsuit; let’s start with the trickiest bit: sourcing swim fabric and notions!

Let’s start with the basics: swim fabric and swim lining. We’ll be sharing some inspiration photos and color combination ideas soon, but for now here are links to shops and fabrics that work well for the Ipswich. Make sure you choose 4-way stretch. I’ve tried to find some options that aren’t just US-based, but if you have a local source that you know about, please leave it in the comments!

Swim Lining

Okay, now on to all the bits and bobs. It can be tricky to figure out which of all the different options out there for elastics, etc. so here are some direct links.

Phew that is quite the list!! Let us know if you have any questions!

  1. I’ve been thinking swimsuit for a while – thank you for putting so much helpful info in one spot. I have no excuse now with your pattern and course 🙂

    ArteCrafts, Sweet Cups Bra Supply, Porcelynne, and SewSassy all have the bra components and some of the swim clasps.

Let me know what you think!
