Hi! I am just about to order from Stetchtex to make rashies for my 3 children aged 2-4 years. I live in North Qld and was wondering if you could tell me where this pattern might be available from apart from Eumundi markets?? (online or bricks & mortar store)? I can't find J&L anywhere. Many thanks for any help you can provide, Lindy :-)

I like the outfit and her unexpected choice of colour. Also for swim wear, Kwik Sew have interesting patterns. Great project, I think !

Never heard of a rashie or stinger clothes before. I was wondering why it was called that when I read about the jellyfish. They can't sting through swimwear fabric? What an appropriate name and what a nice top also. Your daughter is very lucky, she can have a new swimsuit whenever she wants!

Hello Brmm, I bought the fabric direct from, in Sydney who manufacture for Speedo etc. They have a lot of technical fabrics, and were very helpful, they sent a sample sheet, I contacted them through their website. I have never seen their fabric at retail shops. Their postage was very reasonable. I did buy a lot all at once, so there may be a minimum purchase. The pattern I bought from a stall at Eumundi markets a few years ago.

Great rashie! Interested to know where to get that pattern and how to buy the fabric - I'm in Brisbane. Cheers.

Great use of a pattern. You must have saved a LOT over the years making your own. I'm not familiar with the pattern company, but I suppose I could adapt another pattern if necessary. Thanks.

Very cool! I had never even heard of a 'stinger suit' before. :-)

This doesn't look home-made at all, and I'm sure you saved a bundle. I am envious of your 9-month swimming season!

Your son looks really happy in his new rashie. I bet you saved a bundle over the years. I must remember the pattern if I ever manage to get myself some grandchildren.
