    Default Has anyone sewn their own rashguard swim shirts?

    My kids like to wear those rash guard swim shirts to the pool in the summer. This year, two of my sons are wearing adult sizes, which cost a lot more per shirt. The least expensive I found was ~$29/shirt. Since I can sew, I ordered some swimwear fabric and I'm going to try my hand at making my own swimshirts. They are just t-shirts made out of swimwear fabric. Has anyone done this also?

    ~Haven't made my own rash-guards yet but I have made other swimwear out of old rash-guards. It was much easier to work with than I anticipated. Just take your time and I'm sure they'll turn out great!~

    I finished the shirts a couple of weeks ago. The swimwear fabric cost $40 and was enough to make four shirts, plus have a little left over for something else.

    They've worn them twice to swim and they hold up well. Here's a pic of dh and our olders boys before heading to the pool:
