The Grace Tankini, a vintage inspired swimsuit by Savvy Patterns
Two piece options include 2 tops and 4 bottoms to mix and match.
You can purchase your copy here, on sale until July 9th,

I had the pleasure of testing the Grace Tankini and it was actually rewarding and fun. I had to take a small trip to Shasta county which is a 5 hour drive from where I live. So my pictures where taken in Redding Ca. Beautiful place Shasta County.

There are many options to the Grace Tankini. I chose to make view A top and view B skirt with the build in panty. View A top is not ruched and does have the circle in back. The skirt has a slit on the side as well. I made my tankini reversible. By reversible, I used swim suit fabric for the outer and inner instead of using a lining. I used fold Over Elastic for the armholes and neck bindings, which allowed it to be reversible. I also used the self bra which is also included in the pattern. Pictures show both sides of the reversible tankini top.

Information and specs. The Grace Tankini comes in size 0-18.

Picture taken of Mt Shasta when I visited last weekend. I was able to drive by my old home where I used to live and take this picture, using a 300mm lens.

Thank you for reading my blog.
