Baby Girl Swimsuit

I decided to make a rash guard and swim diaper cover for Claire. She had tried her little cousin's one piece swimsuit but kept crying about the straps. I like rash guards because it makes diaper changes easy, and it's great for sun protection.
Pattern: I used the raglan shirt pattern and diaper cover pattern from the Kwiksew Sewing for Baby. I added an opening to the neckline and snaps. I added a tall band to the diaper cover so that her tummy stays covered even if the shirt comes up.
Fabric: I used fabric leftover from my first swimsuit I ever made. It's such a pretty damask pattern. I just had some gray swimsuit fabric in my stash.
Time: 1.5 hours
Cost: $1, I used a very small amount of fabric for this tiny swimsuit.
