    We are glad all of you like it so much. The bathing suit is indeed good for all body types with its low cut on the legs.

    Zora, you are right, we need to get up a size chart for your reference. Give us a couple of hours!

    Did you guys see that we are looking for a technical drawing! We need your help, check out the mini contest in the blog!

    Beautiful! I don’t have a serger, but now I wish I had one, so I could make this bathing suite!

    Sexy sexy sexy!!! I think I will make a bodie of it and will wear it to jeans and a nice white open blouse for the night.

    I guess, it can be made without a serger, just use a narrow zick-zack for all the seams, that has to be stretchy. The suit is great, I very much like the retro look of the suit and that you have chosen this model, the suit on her type of skin looks gorgeous.
