Hi Olivia,

Great question, we would recommend checking out the 5 Out Of 4 Tidal Wave Swim Shorts! Cashmerette also offers a tutorial on their blog for hacking their Belmont Leggings into a pair of swim shorts, which you could follow using your favourite legging or bike short pattern. Hope this helps!

Do you know of any swim short patterns? I’m looking for something tight fitting and maybe a bit longer than boy short style.
