At ASG Conference 2006, Kerstin Martensson was inducted posthu-mously into the Sewing Hall of Fame. Anyone who has ever sewed with a Kwik-Sew pattern or used the infor-mation in a Kwik-Sew publication has been touched by Kerstin’s legacy. Born in Gothenburg, Sweden and educated in Sweden and England, Kerstin specialized in clothing con-struction, pattern design, and fashion. She used these skills in the ready-to-wear industry where quick-and-easy patterns were needed to reduce labor and time for clothing manufacturers. Ultimately, she took a job as a pattern maker with Swedish-based Viking Sewing Machine Company.

Master Pattern Included

Sewing swim and action wear will be easy and fun with this book. You can create a one-of-a-kind garment and select the style that looks the best on you. The Master Pattern in this book includes a variety of swimsuits, leotards, leggings and shorts. Many variations are included for one and two piece swimsuits, action wear for biking, gymnastics, aerobics, dancing and skating. With your creativity an endless variety of styles can be made.

The sewing procedures are easy to follow with many clear illustrations, that even a beginner sewer can follow and be able to make professio nal looking garments.

Making your own swimwear and action wear is much easier and faster than you can imagine and you will also save a lot of money, since each outfit takes a minimum amount of fabric. A large variety of fabrics for swim and action wear are available in most fabric stores, many of the same fabrics as used in ready-to-wear.

The multi-sized master pattern is printed on durable white paper with colour coded lines for each size. The patterns are printed on both sides of the paper so we could include as many sizes and designs as possible. Trace the patterns using tracing paper or tracing cloth made of transparent pressed fibers.

All of the master pattern pieces include 1/4? (6 mm) seam allowances. This is the best seam allowance to use when sewing swim and action wear. You can use a regular sewing machine or a serger/overlock machine.

The master pattern includes five sizes from extra small to extra large. Patterns are made to fit specific body measurements. Before you trace the pattern, choose the size by comparing your measurements to the measurement chart. Choose the size closest to your bust, waist and hip measurements. If in-between sizes, choose the larger size. The book gives instruction for making changes on the pattern for the proper fit.

This book has easy-to-follow sewing instructions with clear illustrations and time saving techniques for even the beginning sewer. All styles and creative ideas are shown throughout the book in full colour photographs.

This book does a very good job of explaining the mechanics of sewing swim and active wear. The reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because my copy did not have the master patterns that were with the book when it was new. I will have to go and buy swimsuit patterns to be able to make the suit examples that are in the book since the master pattern was not included in the copy I received. Please verify with your seller if the master pattern is included or not. The information can be gained easily enough online, the patterns can not.

If you're just starting out sewing active wear or sewing on spandex/ Lycra this book is a wonderful reference for your sewing room...it includes master patterns so you can make basic work out gear or change it up to add mesh panels... love my edition!

I bought this book because I have never sewn swimwear before, and wanted to learn so I can start making swimsuits, especially for synchronized swimming. I found this book to be a great help for getting start since all of the directions were easy to follow and the book came with patterns of different sizes. The illustrations are especially helpful, since I can see what the finished produce will look like. I highly recommend the book, especially when you are working with difficult, stretchy fabrics.

I have found this book very helpful for the information on action wear- would definitely recommend it to others

Great resource. Patterns run a little on the large side but it only takes once to learn. Getting raves on first bathing suit and requests to start making for friends. Love the book, love the master patterns. What more can a woman who swims 3 times a week ask for.

After many years of driving myself crazy looking for leotards with high-cut legs, thank God I finally ran across this pattern! It's got anything and everything for all shapes and sizes, and the instructions are as clear as can be. The only stumbling block might be that it's printed on both sides of the paper and one has to do a bit of work to find which one will be good for whatever you want. I'm so grateful I'm giving it a 5!

Great book, lots of info!
I have been making costumes for over 15 years and have always avoided a leotard. I am confident that with these instructions that are very easy to follow I will have no problems in getting the perfect fit.
