Fabric Shops with Swim Fabric:

If you’re looking for swim fabric, check out all the many options from PeekABoo Fabric Shop. I can totally vouch for their fabric, it’s buttery soft and the lining is amazing. We personally use their fabric and love it!

I also love Girl Charlee fabrics for the shorts and swim cover-ups.

Happy sewing!!
