Does any one know where I can find a rashguard pattern for kids?
AND (let me vent here) why are swim suit patterns soooo hard to find.

Is this what you are looking for? It is listed as out of print but still for sale on their site.

I have made it for both my kids out of regular swim suit lycra for sun protection.



Jalie's cycling shirt might work too.

Kwiksew used to have more swim suit options, but dropped many when they redesigned their website.

If you want swimsuit patterns look at Kwik Sew. As Michelle mentioned they even have rash suit patterns for kid's and adults.

I feel your pain. I was looking for that exact OOP Kwik Sew rash guard pattern (#2888, and #2889) and put a Wanted notice in the PR classifieds. No one had it but someone pointed me to an online store that still carries it. It's still on their website, (I just looked):

OMG I made that pattern ... must've been eight years ago (one of the first things I'd sewn in a decade or more). It was adorable, too... Royal blue spandex with a blue/green spandex print contrast stripe. I remember that my stepson was so delighted with it, he wore it to the Y that very night.

...And left it in the locker room, and of course it was gone by the time we discovered the loss (which was not long at all).

Geez, I can still feel the pain! Anyhow... take your kiddo with you fabric shopping, you won't be sorry. Enjoy!

Changing gears a bit. Where do you get the knits with SPF protector ?

Most lycra swim suit type knits offer a degree of sun protection. However getting a designated SPF number is expensive.

We are a family of very fair skinned red heads and I have found that regular swim wear fabrics work just as well as ones with the designated SPF number.
