I’m Liesel and mama to two boys and I big heart sewing for them.
I’m here to help you try and navigate the seas of boys swim pattern options. There are so many and it’s very overwhelming. I had help from the sewing community in compiling this list. I have not tried every pattern listed, nor do I own every pattern. It is not all inclusive but does include the basics to get you going. I know you’ll find something you love for those boys to have the perfect summer swim wear.
Swim bottom patterns designed for boardshort fabric. These are more traditional swim trunk style patterns.
