Top 3 tips for sewing swimwear:
- The best swimwear fabrics are mostly made of nylon, and contain at least 10-20% spandex.
- Power mesh is a wonderful material that adds more support to your swimwear as it has 4-way stretch and powerful recovery. If you'll like more compression or shaping in your activewear, adding a power mesh panel can work wonders!
- Use a super stretch needle to sew swimwear. Beautiful stitches are the foundation of a beautiful garment, and a humble sewing machine can create a professional, store-bought finish with the help of twin stretch needles.
