Just a couple of weeks ago I posted a picture tutorial and download link for the templates and chart for the free Fiji Sunsuit pattern and it is well loved! I keep seeing little models wearing this sunsuit all over facebook. BTW, join our group so you can post pictures of what you make with free DIY Crush patterns!
I used this amazing fabric selection which is Art Gallery’s ‘Lavish’ line. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the quality of this fabric. If you haven’t tried Art Gallery fabric you really should. It’s far different than many others.
Fold down the top edge 1/4″ and press, fold down once more 1/2″ and press. Repeat with bottom edge.
Sew the hems down along the dashed lines, with a 1/8″ seam allowance to the inner folded edge. Leave a 1/2″-3/4″ opening in the center on the top and bottom casing (image below does not show the opening on the bottom). Backstitch the beginning and end.
Secure a small enough safety pin to one end of the elastic and insert into the casing. Once the ends meet, overlap 3/8″ and hand stitch together with several stitches. Repeat this step by inserting the elastic into the bottom casing as well. Close both openings with your machine.
To make the ties you want to create those just you would making binding tape (just not cut on the bias) but sew the long edge, where the folds meet, closed.
Pin both ties to the inside of the bodice and hand stitch or machine sew them on. Best is to use a matching thread so it won’t be that noticeable from the outside. Your crop top is done and lay it aside.
The little crop top is done! Now off to make the bloomers!
To make the bloomers, fold your fabric over sideways so that your fold is on the right. Place the crotch templates into the upper left corner and pin in place. The long, straight edge of the template must align with the raw edges of the fabric, as well as on top. Trim around template. Repeat with the other bloomer piece.
Fold your leg bands in half lengthwise and press. Shown below is the unfolded piece on top and the folded piece on the bottom.
To sew the band on, place one bloomer piece with right side up onto your table and place one folded leg band onto the bottom edge with the raw edges meeting. Pin and sew in place, then hem the raw edge. Repeat with the other bloomer and leg band pieces.

This is as cute as could be!!! We love it!
Can’t wait to try this! Thank You!!
why is it so hard to find the free pattern to print????????
There is only the crotch cutout to print. If you are not finding the download link, it’s stated at the very beginning to go to page 2. It’s on the bottom.
I did that and you only get size chart and crotch cutout
That is all you need to create this outfit. There is a chart to cut the pieces for the top and shorts. When you follow through with the tutorial you will be able to create this with no problems.
Thank you, Denise.

WHERE WOULD I BE ABLE TO GET THE PATTERN FOR THE SHORTS? I WANTED TO MAKE ONE FOR MY DAUGHTER BUT I CANT SEEM TO FIND THE PATTERN FOR THE BOTTOM ON EITHER PATTERNS (THE SUNSUIT AS WELL)
Thank you for checking out this free pattern post! There is no template for the shorts, there is a cutting chart and downloadable crotch templates though. That’s all you need to make the shorts 😉
Thank you for this free pattern! I am new to sewing and your instructions and pictures made it all easy. It came out so well.
Thank you so much! That is very nice to hear! Thanks for using my free patterns!
I love this so adorable too
Thank you so much!
Hi, I’m new to sewing so I hope this is not a silly question.
There is a mark showing 1″
On the cutout for the crotch, there is notches on the 9-12 month area and on the 24 month area.
Do I use the cutout out as it is when I printed it out or do I have to add an inch for each notch if I
am making the 9-12 months or the 24 months sizes?
The 1 inch box or mark is only to check if the cutouts printed correctly. You would use the crotch cutout as is without adding it to it.
You don’t have to add anything. Just use them as they printed out. Just check the 1 inch print scale to make sure it printed correctly.
I’m trying to down load the patterns for the Gigi sun suit
Are you wanting the Maui sunsuit pattern? You could go to page 2 and scroll down to the last picture of the sunsuit. Underneath that picture it says this “Ready to download the templates and chart? Click HERE!” That’s where you would click.
