I am so excited about my newest swimsuit pattern, and I can’t wait to share it with you!
This Isla Bikini Set is the perfect two piece pin up swimsuit that will making you feel gorgeous while you’re swimming this summer! The top is very supportive for cup sizes A-G with a full bust adjustment instructions for the larger sizes. It provides great coverage but also has a beautiful sweetheart neckline.
The bra shell has a criss cross that is a great design feature. The bottoms come in three different rises: ultra high waist, high waist, and bikini waist. All of the rises come with pattern pieces to make a ruched style as well as the un-ruched style. The bottoms have a front panel and a two side pieces that provide great shaping at the front and back seams. The bottoms are finished with a shell fabric waistband on top and elastic in the legs. There is great “booty” coverage in the back as well!
But if you want some more coverage, you can add a circle skirt that’s included in the pattern pieces! The skirt comes in two lengths: 10 and 12 inches. There is even instructions on how to add powernet to the pattern pieces to provide more support and shaping if desired. The ultra high waist would be perfect for those who don’t like to show as much skin, but also like the bikini style!
The Isla is suitable for maternity in the bikini rise and the bra top is great for nursing!
During testing, we were able to eliminate fitting issues by adding more negative ease to the bottom pieces and the bra band.
I’ve also made the Isla Kimono pattern available for free to anyone who purchases the Isla Bikini! The kimono is a one size fits most style with an optional tie. You can really go crazy adding special trims or even using fabric with a pretty border for this kimono! It’s also the perfect swim cover up for the Isla Bikini.

A special thank you to all of the testers who helped with the release of the Isla! Thank you all for your hard work!
