This is my first completed project with a pattern from the Burda Style site. I paired it with a regular Burda pattern for a swimsuit cover up (#7228). The only thing I added were some bra cups for added support and I made the halter a tie closure instead of using a bathing suit closure. I thought it turned out pretty well for my first bathing suit. I used a serger for most of it and closed the leg openings and strap openings with my regular machine to keep the vintage feel.
