I’m a swimwear sewing pro and I can

help you become one too!

Hi, I’m Anastasia. I got my start in the swimwear world about 10 years ago when I started sewing samples for local brands and friends when I was in school for fashion design. From there I started and ran my own swimwear label for 4 years. I had both successes and failures in the business and now I’m here to share them with you!

Whether you’re just looking for a quick sewing pattern, sewing tips & tutorials or are trying to figure out how to start your own line, I promise I have something here that you’ll find helpful. I share swimwear & lingerie sewing tips and sell beginner-friendly swimwear, lingerie & activewear sewing patterns.
