    Great work! I’ve wanting to make one of these for some time now, but haven’t been brave enough… I love the way yours turned out!

      Click on the link to my blog for more details. It wasn’t easy but not difficult either, just a little fiddly to get the fit right.

    This is really gorgeous. Love the suit. If you ever go into production, I would totally buy a bikini or one piece from you!

    I love it! You should wear it with red lipstick (waterproof)! :D Never thought much about the Alison pattern before, but I want to try it out after seeing yours.
