Summer’s Coming – Check out all of the women’s swimsuit patterns available at 5oo4!

posted in: blog tour, Uncategorized | 1

It occurred to me that we needed a roundup post of all of the women’s swimsuit patterns available at 5 out of 4.  So…here it is!  I hope you find something you love and, hopefully, we can keep this updated with new patterns as they are released.  Most of the 5oo4 women’s swimsuit patterns have multiple uses, so if some of these don’t look like swim patterns in the listing photos, just know that I’m putting them here because they have been used as a swimsuit pattern with success.

Agility Tank and Dress

Agility from 5oo4

The Agility pattern includes a sports bra and overlay tank and dress. All options include the choice of nursing style, maternity, T-back, or strappy back choices.  The tankini cut lines have a lower armscye, so more skin shows, but you’re still modestly covered at the beach. You can also see blog posts where we’ve done an Agility Sewalong here.


Escapade Tank and Dress

The Escapade includes a bikini, tank, and dress options and it includes a maternity option.  Instructions are given for removable cups.


Journey Tank and Dress

The Journey includes a bra, a tank (with built-in bra), and 2 dress length options (including maxi), as well as nursing and maternity options.


Resolution Bra

While technically the Resolution is part of a bra and tank combo meant for working out, the racerback sports bra can easily be made with swim material.


Versatility Tank

The Versatility Tank and Pants was originally intended as sleepwear.  The tank is form fitting and includes nursing and maternity options and a built-in bra.  You could also just use the bra as a bikini top.



The X-Factor includes a bikini, straight or gathered tank, a maternity tankini with ruching detail, and a nursing option.


Key West Bikini, Tank, and Dress
Women's Key WestThe Women’s Key West has a high gathered neckline with an optional keyhole cutout and a lace up back.  The pattern includes a bikini, tank/tankini, maternity, knee length, and maxi length dress options.


Laura Swimsuit, Tankini, and Dress

Laura Swimsuit The Women’s Laura is 5oo4’s first ONE PIECE! Woot.  Laura also includes bikini, tank/tankini, midi dress, and knee length dress.  There are also multiple necklines, back, and shoulder options.


Now onto the bottom half!

From left to right: Riptide Reversible Shorties, Shenanigans Skort, and the Women’s Boardshorts.

The Riptide Reversible Shorties are reversible swim shorts with three rise options (including maternity) and side ruching for different leg heights. You can see all of the posts from the Riptide sewalong here.

The Shenanigans Skort wasn’t originally intended for swimwear, but the shortest length is a great swim skirt!  3 rise heights (including maternity), 3 lengths for the skirts, and 4 lengths for the shorts underneath!  You can also pair the Shenanigans Skort with the Ninja Leggings to have full leggings under your skirt.  You can see all of the posts for the Shenanigans Skort sewalong here.

The Women’s Boardshorts don’t have a liner built-in, but they are perfect over the Ultimate Bikini Bottoms. The pattern includes 4 inseam lengths.

Ultimate Bikini Bottoms

The Ultimate Bikini Bottoms include 4 rise heights, 2 leg heights, an optional skirt, and they can be made reversible.


Tidal Wave Swim Shorts

4 rise heights, 2 leg lengths, and legs can be finished with hem or band.  Shorts can be made solid or color-blocked.


Alice High Rise Swim Bottoms

Alice High RisePlain, Front Tie, Maternity, Peplum, and Flounce are all included in this high rise, medium leg swim bottom.


Whew!  We love making women’s swimsuit patterns and try to come out with at least one new swim pattern every year.  I hope you see something you love! I also highly recommend these two blog posts for information on how to either sew in swim cups or create a suit with removable swim cups.  Looking for swim fabric?  We frequently shop at Sly Fox Fabrics and Zenith and Quasar.
