Tilly and The Buttons CORALIE Swimwear pattern


Dive into the summer with Tilly and The Buttons FIRST EVER swimwear pattern, created in collaboration with designer Evie la Lùve. Makers can create their very own Coralie swimsuit or bikini, with multiple versions to choose from, and lots of pretty details.

You can go wild for the head-turning ruffle details or opt for clean style lines if they prefer to keep it classic. Coralie has so much style potential, with options to colour block or create mix and match bikini sets.

  • One piece swimsuit with choice of high or low back
  • Bikini with choice of high or low waist bottoms
  • Scoop neckline finished with narrow binding and straps
  • Optional neckline ruffle and leg ruffles
  • Mid-cut leg
  • Fully lined, with optional shelf bra and cups

  • Tilly and the Buttons' signature user-friendly instructions make this pattern a perfect introduction to sewing swimwear. Plus it can be sewn entirely on a regular sewing machine with an adjustable zigzag stitch - no overlocker or serger required!
