    A note from the presenter:
    “Swimwear can be so expensive to buy and I often have a hard tme finding a bikini that fits me, so I love to make my own! I need a different size for the top and bottom so sewing different sizes is very easy to do, and I love having control of the fabric I use!" – Meg Healy
