Description

My first (and currently only) attempt at a bathing suit. It could have gone so much worse. Overall I’m pleased with it aesthetically, but it’s not well made. It was a definite learning experience as I flew without a pattern and used boning and elastic for the first time. Despite its shoddiness, it has been worn several times in water with success. From the outside it looks pretty good, but I would never let anyone see its haphazard innards.

Material Notes

Royal blue lycra (desaturated in photo) with gold lame arrows. Plastic boning on each side of bust to support bandeau. Lining yoinked from old lycra figure skating tights.

Difficulty

Intermediate

    I hear ya, I’ve only made 2 or 3 suits and they were definitely a challenge. Maybe that’s why suits are so expensive.It’s hard to get a well finish product inside and out. Well BRAVO it looks great from my point of view. Don’t stop trying, I’m not!
